Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green, R-Ga., says he was “swatted” at her home at 1 a.m. on Wednesday.
Green made the announcement on Twitter and thanked law enforcement for handling the situation professionally. The term “swatting” refers to the illegal practice of making false police reports in an attempt to get law enforcement to raid the home of an innocent person.
“Last night, I was swatted just after 1 a.m.,” Green wrote on Wednesday morning. “I can’t express enough gratitude to my local law enforcement here in Rome, Floyd County.”
“More details to come,” she added.
Green has yet to elaborate further on what happened. The Floyd County Police Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Green is a particularly divisive member of the Republican Party and has had to apologize multiple times for making outlandish claims.
