  • Sohn retweeted a post in June 2020 from actress Issa Rae stating, “Your raggedy white supremacist president and his cowardly enablers would rather kill everybody than stop killing black people.”
  • Biden nominated Sohn last week to replace the vacancy left by FCC Chairman Ajit Pai.
  • The president previously nominated Sohn to replace Pai in October 2021, but concerns about her previous social media activity stopped the Senate from voting to confirm her.
  • “The number of Biden nominees who come out here and have tweeted about Republicans being white supremacists and racists, it seems like that’s how you get nominated in this administration,” Alaska GOP Sen. Dan Sullivan said in February 2022.
