Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said Friday that her offices are “flooded with bigoted calls” while weighing in on a back-and-forth between a pair of House colleagues.

Ocasio-Cortez discussed calls to her office while commenting on recent tweets between Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.), who have been trading barbs on Twitter this week over religious discrimination.

“Our offices are flooded with bigoted calls too – so much so that we have to put energy into searching for actual constituents,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “We forward all the threats to Capitol Police to build files. For all those who think your bigoted calls + digital threats are anonymous: Enjoy!”
