Outspoken Trump-supporter Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) reports being “swatted” at her residence early Wednesday morning.
Swatting is a newer term referring to a third party calling emergency or law enforcement personnel to respond to an urgent need, such as an active shooter or a hostage situation.
The anonymous calls are illegal and extremely disruptive, and they generally require the commitment of significant resources.
Rep. Greene was swatted at approximately 1 a.m. Wednesday — Floyd County police were called to her home in Rome, GA.
Fox News reports that Greene announced the happening on Twitter. She thanked law enforcement for responding quickly and handling the situation professionally.
“Last night, I was swatted just after 1 a.m.,” Greene wrote on Wednesday morning. “I can’t express enough gratitude to my local law enforcement here in Rome, Floyd County.”
“More details to come,” she added.
Greene has made headlines recently for her opposition to the work of the Jan. 6 committee and key Democratic initiatives such as the Inflation Reduction Act bill, gender identity and CRT curriculum in schools and securing the southern border.
