Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene reported that she was swatted for a second time in as many days on Wednesday night. This after having been swatted on Tuesday night, as well.
“Swatted again last night,” Greene said simply.
Greene had been the target of a swatting attack early on Wednesday morning, as well, which was initiated by a 911 caller who claimed, using a computer-generated voice, to be upset over her proposal to criminalize transgender surgeries and hormone therapies for children.
A police report regarding the new incident read that:
“On Thursday, August 25, 2022, at 0253 hours, Rome/Floyd E-911 received a call about a male possible shooting his family members and then himself at… the home of Marjorie Greene. The males name that was given was Wayne Greene. The call came in as though it was from a suicide crisis center but it was not through a phone, it was from an internet chat. The person who made the cal through the chat advised that they ‘came out as transgender and claimed that they shot the family.’
“They also claimed, ‘If anyone tried to stop me from shooting myself, I will shoot them.’ they also advised ‘they would be waiting for us.'”
“Lt. Smith advised Officer Groover and I to go to the location and try to make contract with Ms. Greene. We arrived and approached the house. Officer Groover went to the front door to make contact. Ms. Greene came to the door and we alerted her with the reason why we were there.
“The suicide chat line that was used could not get a location due to the person(s) using a VPN.”
A statement from the Rome Police Department to the media read:
“On August 25, 2022 at about 0253 hours Rome Police officers responded to a second “swatting: call at the residence of Majorie Taylor Greene. This call was received on what appeared to be a suicide crisis line from an internet chat.
“Officers responded once again to Mrs. Greene’s home and confirmed this was a second false report.
“The Rome Police Department Criminal Investigation Division is working in conjunction with the Capitol Police on this investigation.
“This is an active investigation and no further information can be released at this time.”
Speaking to Jack Posobiec on The Charlie Kirk show about the initial event, Greene said “It was a scary situation last night, something I never expected and should not have happened. This was basically political terrorism.”
A police report detailed the incident further. It stated that officers were dispatched “in reference to a male who had been shot 5 times in a bathtub. The call came in from a VA crisis line. As the details continued to be relayed, it was reported that the female was still in the residence and possibly had some children inside with her.”
It was on the way to the residence that the officers were informed that the home was that of Greene. “Due to the nature of the call, we formed up at the intersection of [redacted],” the report reads. “We then made the approach to the residence, still unsure of exactly what had transpired or what was still in progress. We made a tactical approach to the residence and began ringing the doorbell.”
“After several minutes we were met at the door by the victim. We informed her of the reason for us being there, and she assured us there was no issue. She stated that she would forward the issue to the appropriate security services and requested a ‘keep check’ on her residence.”
“After we cleared the call,” the report continued, “and went back in service, Rome-Floyd 911 received a call from the suspect, claiming responsibility for the incident and explaining his/her motives. It was a computer generated voice. They explained that they were upset about Ms. Greene’s stance on ‘trans-gender youth’s rights’, and stated that they were trying to ‘SWAT’ her. The suspect claims that he is connected to the website ‘kiwifarm.net’ which is a site that supports cyberstalking. The suspect stated that their user name is ‘AltisticRight’.”
Greene confirmed that, despite the swatting or any other threats, “there is no way I’m backing down. I introduced very important legislation called the Protect Children’s Innocence Act… It makes it a felony to perform any type of so-called ‘gender affirming care,’ which is really genital mutilation surgeries, hormone therapies, [and] puberty blockers, and this is absolute child abuse.”
“It’s really interesting that this just happened not only a week after I introduced this critical legislation,” Greene told Posobiec.
