The Ohio College Republican Federation apologized Wednesday evening for a fundraising email calling Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D- N.Y.) a “domestic terrorist.”
Cortez said earlier she received a “spike in death threats” almost every time Conservative groups made such “uncalled for rhetoric.”
In a statement, the college Republicans called the language used in its email “unacceptable.” “The OCRF does not condone the unauthorized email sent out in our name,” it said.
This puts me in danger every time.
Almost every time this uncalled for rhetoric gets blasted by conserv. grps, we get a spike in death threats to refer to Capitol Police.

The OCRF does not condone the unauthorized email sent out in our name. We apologize to Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez for the use of unacceptable language in this email, and we do not approve of the message conveyed. https://t.co/h4rHyrwJQv
