Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) sent a warning Friday to the bigots who flood her offices with hateful telephone calls.
The freshman lawmaker tweeted that all the threats were forwarded to Capitol Police “to build files.” She added: “For all those who think your bigoted calls + digital threats are anonymous: Enjoy!”
Yep. Our offices are flooded with bigoted calls too - so much so that we have to put energy into searching for actual constituents.

Ocasio-Cortez’s warning was in response to a tweet from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), who also reported being “flooded with bigoted voicemails and calls every day” amid an exchange with Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.), who without evidence had earlier intimated that she disliked Jewish people.
This is heinous and hateful. I too am flooded with bigoted voicemails and calls every day.
Maybe we could meet and share notes on how to fight religious discrimination of all kinds?
Maybe over Somali tea, in your old office which I happen to be in now. https://t.co/FQ909kYSwo
