Levinthal told The Washington Post that, although fundraising emails from political groups often contain "hyperbolic, misleading or … demonstrable errors," the college group's note was "the first seen that puts a sitting congresswoman on couple with mass murderers who blow up buildings or kill schoolchildren."

Ocasio-Cortez, who's been a target of frequent death threats since taking office, said that Whenever violent rhetoric is used against her and her colleagues, they see a "spike" in threats.

"Multiple ppl have been arrested trying to harm me, Ilhan, & others," she added, referring to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). "@GOP, what is it going to take to stop?"

Facing backlash, the Ohio Federation of College Republicans has attempted to distance itself from the inflammatory email, counting The Guardian that it had been "unauthorized," though it did not elaborate

In a statement to the Guardian, the group apologized to Ocasio-Cortez for the "use of unacceptable language in this email," insisting: "We do not approve of the message conveyed."
