Republicans have raised their voice against the appointment of Dyjuan Tatro, an ex-gangster for a top position by Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney.
The Hudson Valley area rep has tapped Mr. Tatro as the senior adviser for diversity and inclusion.
According to The Post, the head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee head has made his move to make meaningful moves in the criminal justice system of the country.
Mr. Tatro is a high profile criminal justice advocate who shot to fame after appearing on the College Behind Bars documentary series by PBS in 2019.

The documentary shows the lives of a group of inmates who are trying to reform their life by completing their degrees via the Bard Prison Initiative program of the New York state.
Tatro received his degree while serving a sentence for racketeering conspiracy.
At the time of his conviction in 2011, he was already behind bars for shooting his rival gang members.
The ex-member of the Original Gansta Killas street gang has the street name triggerman and is infamous for terrorizing Albany.
Tatro’s crime includes shooting, razor slashing, dealing drugs, and conspiring to traffic drugs.
After getting free from prison in 2017, he became the advocate for providing educational opportunities for an inmate through the BPI to help them turn a new leaf.
But, the Republicans are not impressed with the move to appoint Tatro.
They believe it only reinforces the claim that Democrats cannot take tough action on crimes.
They are questioning Congressman Maloney’s decision to appoint someone like Tatro with a violent past to such a key position of their organization.
But, DCCC and Maloney are unperturbed by the Republican uproar.
They are defending the decision by saying it will send a positive message to inmates who are considering a turn-around in their life.
The action can motivate other inmates to take steps to change their life’s trajectory through education and serve the community.
According to Maloney, Dyjuan Tatro who has worked on his campaigns can bring reform and improvements to the criminal justice system.
Dyjuan Tatro is also looking forward to contributing to different issues related to equity & inclusion, politics, and diversity.
