Rep. Marjorie Taylor-Greene, R-Ga., arrives on Capitol Hill in Washington, Oct. 24, 2023. A federal judge rejected Taylor Greene’s request to have an upstate New York man convicted of sending her threatening voicemails pay $65,000 for her Georgia home’s security fence. Joseph Morelli pleaded guilty in February to threatening the Republican congresswoman in several calls in 2022 to her Washington, D.C., office. He was sentenced to three months in prison in August. Lawyers for the government argued that Greene’s security expenses stemmed from the threats. But U.S. District Judge Brenda Kay Sannes denied the request in a ruling Tuesday, Nov. 14 saying Greene did not suffer a property loss. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon, file)
