Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., reported on Monday that she was the target of a second “swatting” incident at her Georgia residence; local police confirmed the incident.
According to Major Rodney Bailey of the Rome, Georgia, police department, a caller to the suicide hotline from Rome, New York, claimed he had shot his fiancée at Greene’s Georgia address and then threatened to commit suicide. The caller was based in Rome.
The police then informed Greene’s team of the call by contacting her local security liaison. According to Bailey, her security team determined that officers were unnecessary at her residence, and a police response was subsequently canceled.
Greene has experienced swatting incidents in the past.
I was just swatted.
This is like the 8th time.
On Christmas with my family here.
My local police are the GREATEST and shouldn’t have to deal with this.
I appreciate them so much and my family and I are in joyous spirits celebrating the birth of our savior Jesus Christ!

False reports circulated the previous year regarding shootings outside her residence, which is situated approximately 70 miles northwest of Atlanta.
Upon physically responding to the incidents, the police ascertained that the allegations were unfounded.
In the northwest of the state, Greene serves as the representative for Georgia’s 14th Congressional District, which includes the municipalities of Rome, Dalton, and Calhoun.
