Joseph Morelli of Endicott, New York, has been handed a three-month prison sentence for making menacing phone calls to the office of Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene. The Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene threat case was conveyed via voicemail in March 2022. A decision on Greene’s request for approximately $67,000 in restitution to cover security enhancements at her residence has been delayed.

In February, during his guilty plea, Morelli admitted to phoning Greene’s Washington office and threatening her with physical harm. The U.S. attorney’s office in Syracuse made this information public at the time, revealing chilling excerpts from the voicemails. In one message, Morelli declared, “I’m gonna have to take your life into my own hands.”

Messages included alarming threats, such as promising to show Greene the true meaning of violence and even suggesting he would pay someone to physically harm her.

Prior to the Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene threat case, she had already expressed concerns about her safety in public spaces. Earlier this year, she claimed to have been “attacked” by a woman and her adult son while dining at a restaurant, underscoring the ongoing risks faced by public figures.
