(Slay News) – Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has just revealed that she was the victim of another “swatting” attack at her home last night.
This makes the second night in a row that someone has used the dangerous hoax to send a SWAT team of armed police to Greene’s home.
During the previous incident, armed police arrived at Greene’s home at 1 am with guns drawn because the “swatter” said she had killed her husband and that children were in danger.
“Officers responded once again to Mrs. Greene’s home and confirmed this was a second false report,” Rome PD said in a statement.
Greene said simply: “Swatted again last night.”
Swatted again last night.

As Slay News reported earlier, Greene revealed the harrowing details of her first swatting.
She said the “dangerous” hoax put her “family’s life in danger.”
The congresswoman also said that she almost answered the door with her gun as she normally would in the middle of the night, but thankfully, didn’t on this occasion.
“So I was sound asleep,” Greene recalled.
“Um, of course never expected anyone to be coming to my house at that time in the morning.
“Um, heard some knocks on the door, heard my doorbell, saw some lights outside, heard people outside my windows, in my yard.
“I jumped out of bed,” she said.
“Threw my clothes on and I picked up my gun.
“That was, that was my instinct because I’m a gun owner.
“I’m a Second Amendment supporter and I believe in defending myself and normally I answer the door with a gun, especially if it’s someone that I don’t expect coming to my home.
“But for some reason, I had this weird gut instinct to not take my gun with me to the front door, which is, was very out of the norm for me.
“So I put my gun down and I just went down the hallway and the house was still dark.
“I saw the police outside and they, you know, they had their guns, they were ready because they had received a terrible phone call to the 911 center.
“And so I walked up there and I saw them and I was really startled.
“I opened the door and the officer standing there, he said, ‘Ma’am, are, are you okay? Is everything okay here?’
“But it was the body posture of the police. Uh, that was really concerning me.
“Like, it had me even, I was upset. I was afraid.
“I was like, there’s something terribly wrong.
“I could not believe someone would do that.
“And I was shocked because they put not only did they put my life and my family’s life in danger, they also put the police officer’s lives in danger.
“That’s how people, that’s how people accidentally get killed.
“These police officers are great though, Jack.
“I can’t say enough great things about them.
“But in other situations, let’s say if there’s, uh, you know, a police officer that has a happy trigger finger, you know, you don’t know what could happen if they saw me with a gun, they may have fired at me.
“I would hope not. But that’s what has happened in the past with swatting.
“That’s why being swatted or swatting is so dangerous.
“It’s actually, it’s like a death by cop. It is a murder.
“It’s someone that is sending police to in their hopes, kill the person that they’re targeting.
“And, you know, in this case now that we know, uh, the, what the guy said, we known it’s a political terrorist,” she said.
911 is for emergencies. Police resources need to be used wisely.
