New York House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is already in hot water for wildly accusing Texas Senator Ted Cruz of trying to kill her.

Ocasio-Cortez had told Cruz over Twitter that “you almost had me murdered 3 weeks ago.”

In a letter sent to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Texas House Rep. Chip Roy decried Ocasio-Cortez’s accusation against Cruz as “scurrilous.” According to Roy’s website, the letter also demanded that Ocasio-Cortez apologize to Cruz. 

Here is the letter to House Speaker Pelosi:

 

Dear Speaker Pelosi,

 

It has come to my attention that Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sent out a tweet

a few hours ago in which she accused Senator Ted Cruz, in essence, of attempted murder.

As a member of this body who disagreed with “objections” to the electors and who has

expressed publicly my concerns about the events leading to January 6th, it is completely

unacceptable behavior for a Member of Congress to make this kind of scurrilous charge

against another member in the House or Senate for simply engaging in speech and debate

regarding electors as they interpreted the Constitution. I ask you to call on her to

immediately apologize and retract her comments.

 

If Representative Ocasio-Cortez does not apologize immediately, we will be forced to find

alternative means to condemn this regrettable statement. It is my sincere hope that we all

stop this heightened rhetoric and move forward to actually do the work the American

people sent us here to do.

 

Sincerely,

 

CHIP ROY

Member of Congress
