If you work for the government of New York City and insist on posting racist, sexist, anti-Semitic, or otherwise off-color remarks on Twitter, the New York Post will find you. The latest is Anthony Baker, a.k.a. "Hyman Doodlesack," a staffer for public advocate and mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio, the second of his employees to be put on blast for ugly tweets in the last month. Baker's sins included not-clever, not-funny updates like "AIPAC makes me want to be a Nazi" and "I need the best goddamn-Jew-lawyer money can buy!" He has since resigned and can join the club.
