Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene reported her home was “swatted” Monday on Christmas with a fake emergency call, as she praised police for their professionalism as they responded to the latest in dangerous pranks targeting the Georgia Republican.

“I was just swatted. This is like the 8th time. On Christmas with my family here. My local police are the GREATEST and shouldn’t have to deal with this,” she wrote on the X social media platform.

A spokesperson for the Rome, Ga., police told The Hill that multiple calls were made through a crisis hotline in both Rome, N.Y., and Rome, Ga., requesting emergency services to Greene’s home.

While en route to the address, personnel with the Rome (GA) Police Department coordinated with Greene’s security detail to ensure her safety as well as determine that there was in fact no emergency at the address,” the spokesperson said.

Greene’s home has been swatted more than a half dozen times since summer 2022. At least one of the prank callers claimed they were upset with Greene’s position on transgender rights.
