It seems the swatters have a flair for irony — and a vindictive streak … their latest victim is the California state senator gunning to shut them down … our sources has learned.
Senator Ted Lieu was swatted earlier today … police responded to a 911 call claiming he had shot his wife inside their Torrance, Calif., home … law enforcement sources tell our sources.
Lieu tells our sources … he was out of town, his wife was home sick and the kids were at school. He vows he”s more determined than ever to squash the swatters.
Although Ted”s not an A-list celeb like fellow swatting victims Justin Bieber, Ashton Kutcher, Selena Gomez or Justin Timberlake — he is spearheading legislation that would punish swatters by making them cover the cost of the incident — around $10,000 a pop.
That”s one expensive phone bill.
