Tayhlor Coleman, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s first-ever director of the cycle of engagement, made the deletion of numerous anti-LGBT tweets one of her first priorities after being contacted by The Washington Free Beacon.

The DCCC’s new position was billed last week as a key component of its strategy to reach young people, but Ms. Coleman’s repeated “no homo” rhetoric over the years may make that more difficult.

The Free Beacon contacted the Democrat for a piece published Monday, but thousands of tweets disappeared before it ran.

“I would never trust a dude born && raised in Atlanta…it’s so homo out here,” she wrote in July 2010.

“#ThingsIDontRemember: Giving a lesbian my number during Mardi Gras. Now she keeps calling me. #awkward #yikes #homophobia,” she added at another point.

“Do they say no homo [each time]” she asked regarding “butt smackage” at sporting events.

The “no homo” caveat was added to multiple posts by Ms. Coleman when she spoke on possibly meeting up with someone.

Coleman also once said she was too ‘concerned about safety’ to go to a vending machine because there may be Mexicans there, a fear that may make outreach to the Hispanic community difficult,” the Free Beacon added. “On Friday there were 4,524 tweets available from her account, but on Sunday afternoon there were just 1,043.”

Ms. Coleman responded to the website’s inquiries by blocking reporter Brent Scher.

The DCCC did not respond to his request for comment.
