If you work in Washington, D.C., you know that political flacks like saying the F-word all of the time, regardless whether they are male and female.

But they usually avoid using the word on the record or on social media. Not Hillary Clinton’s latest hire Jess McIntosh, the new director of communications outreach for the campaign.

The former vice president of communications for EMILY’s List and fearless defender of abortion and Planned Parenthood frequently used the word on social media as part of her online communications strategy.

“Fucked up fucking world, guys. Fuck,” she wrote on July 13, 2013.

In 2012, she admitted that she frequently used the word, but hinted that she would re-think it after Obama’s re-election.

“For the record, I’ve been saying fuck since Reagan,” she wrote in November, “And when this election is over, I will never say fuck again.

But that doesn’t appear to have worked out, as Macintosh used the word to describe her movement around Washington D.C. and other places in the country in 2013.

“Getting the fuck outta town,” she wrote on May 25, 2013.

“Aw fuck I’m back,” she wrote in November 2012.

“I’m gonna sashay in DC too. Fuck it,” she continued.

During a trip to New York City, she took to Twitter to react to a woman she saw on the street.

“Little old woman, cross legged on the sidewalk, flipping off everyone walking by,” she wrote. “Nice to be home, New York, fuck you too.”

McIntosh also uses the word to describe her eating habits.

“Ate the fuck out of that bagel, you guys.”

“I ate the fuck out of that puffer fish. It’s been real, y’all,” she wrote, in October 2012 posting a link to a photo on Instagram that no longer exists.

One time she used the word to react to what she thought was a particularly good moment from President Obama.

“Fuck yeah, Mr. President,” she wrote, using the hashtag #cspan2012

On her way to a dinner, she used the word to react to someone praising her looks.

“Nothing like being told my ass is proof of god on the way to a women’s empowerment diner,” she wrote in 2014. “Fuck everything.”

She also employed the word to express her discouragement after reading an article about how women executives suffered for promoting other women and people of color.

“Women execs and execs of color take a hit when they promote women and ppl of color,” she wrote. “In other news, fuck everything.”

McIntosh worked for Al Franken’s Minnesota Senate campaign before she left his Senate office for EMILY’s List, earning the highest praise from the senator.
“For the past three years I have counted Jess among my most trusted advisors and I wish her the best at EMILY’s List,” Franken said in a 2010 statement.  “Jess’s talent is battle-tested and will be put to great use in her new role generating earned media and handling crises for a new generation of progressive women candidates.”
“I literally have the best job in Washington,” she said, during her speech at the EMILY’s List 30th Anniversary Conference.
After taking the job with Clinton’s campaign, McIntosh expressed her delight at tackling presumptive frontrunner Donald Trump. “I get to help put to shame a man who has built his career off degrading women,” she said.
