During a 2019 visit to congressional offices at the Capitol, Greene can be seen talking through a mailbox slot, telling Ocasio-Cortez to come out of her office.
In a video saved by CNN’s KFile, Greene says through the mailbox slot, “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, I’m an American citizen. I pay your salary through the taxes that you collect for me through the IRS because I’m a taxpaying citizen of the United States.”
Greene explained, “I do not support your socialist policies and I do not support your murderous, abortion policies.

Greene continued, “So you need to stop being a baby and stop locking your door and come out and face the American citizens that you serve. If you want to be a big girl, you need to get rid of your diaper and come out and be able to talk to the American citizens. Instead of having to use a flap, a little flap. Sad.”
One ally of Greene’s said through the slot, “You can’t stay in there forever. Can you come out and play.”
Greene confronted Ocasio-Cortez again on Wednesday when two reporters from The Washington Post witnessed her shouting, “Hey Alexandria,” as IJR reported.
She reportedly began to walk faster when Ocasio-Cortez did not turn around, shouting and asking her why she supports antifa and Black Lives Matter.
Ocasio-Cortez spokeswoman Lauren Hitt said in a statement, “Representative Greene tried to begin an argument with Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez and when Rep. Ocasio-Cortez tried to walk away, Congresswoman Greene began screaming and called Rep. Ocasio-Cortez a terrorist sympathizer.”
Greene responded, “Actually, [Speaker Pelosi] the Ethics Commitee should look into [AOC] for putting Trump admin staff and supporters on lists to destroy their lives and prevent future employment.”
She went on, “She threatened the livelihoods of Americans for simply being Republicans. BTW, there was no screaming.”
