Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) was swatted at her Rome, Georgia residence at 1AM Wednesday morning.
Stay tuned for MTG’s appearance on The Alex Jones Show to break down the raid on her home:
“Last night, I was swatted just after 1 am. I can’t express enough gratitude to my local law enforcement here in Rome, Floyd County. More details to come,” Taylor Greene wrote on Twitter on Wednesday morning.

More details to come.
According to a Rome Police Department report, the late night raid was the result of a “swatting” attempt by a pro-trans extremist.
“Swatting” is a move made by an unknown caller to report a fake crime in progress to compel law enforcement to raid an innocent person’s home.
From the Rome News-Tribune:
According to a Rome Police Department report, Rome police officers responded to a 911 call on Wednesday at 01:03 a.m. which led them to initially believe a man who had been shot multiple times in the bathtub at Greene’s home. The caller also stated there was a woman inside the home and possibly children with her. When officers responded Greene assured the officers there was no issue at the home.
“After we cleared the call and went back in service, Rome-Floyd 911 received a call from the suspect, claiming responsibility for the incident and explaining his/her motives,” the report stated. “It was a computer generated voice. They explained they were upset about Ms. Greene’s stance on ‘trans-gender youth’s rights,’ and stated they were trying to ‘swat’ her.”
The report also stated the caller said they are connected to a website, which police stated supports cyberstalking, and gave the police their user name on the site.
The Rome Police Department’s criminal investigation division in conjunction with the Capitol Police are investigating the incident.
This comes days after Greene introduced new legislation aimed at protecting minors from gender reassignment surgeries, making such procedures on individuals under 18 years old a Class C felony punishable by a fine of up to $250,000 and/or up to 25 years behind bars.
This is just another example of the left using law enforcement they so badly want to “defund” to target/punish their political opposition.
