Transgender Extremist Attempts to Kill Marjorie Taylor Greene with SWATTING
UPDATE: "This is attempted murder and as revealed in tweets by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, the perpetrator has called the police to take full credit for this attempt to cause harm "as a transgender". This is domestic transgender terrorism, " says Eugene Delgaudio, president of Public Advocate.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) announced Wednesday morning on her social media accounts that she had been "swatted" and more details were to come.
"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," she wrote on her various social media accounts.
Greene has not yet specified who "swatted" her or what the reason was, but she retweeted various responses on Twitter expressing outrage. (updated in first paragraph)
Five police officers showed up at Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's home overnight after an alleged opponent of her stance on transgender rights made a false 911 call, authorities in Georgia said Wednesday.
The "swatting" call falsely claimed that a man had been shot multiple times in a bathtub at a residence in Rome, Georgia, the city's police department said in a report shared with CNBC.
The Rome Police Department at 1:04 a.m. ET dispatched five officers, who were told on the way that they were headed to Greene's house, the report said. They rang the doorbell and were met by the Republican congresswoman, who "assured us there was no issue," the report said.
A spokeswoman for the department told CNBC that the officers checked Greene's home.
Afterward, the department received a second call from a suspect using a computer-generated voice who claimed responsibility for the incident.
The suspect "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 police report said.
