Johnson’s Office Sends Cease and Desist Letter to Constituent
Not allowed to call or visit Johnson's office
A Milwaukee man received a cease and desist letter from the office of Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., after calling his office hundreds of times.
According to CBS 58, Earl Good, a Vietnam War veteran and Democrat, received the letter after calling numerous times, calling once 83 times before someone picked up.
“The day before was 40 to get through. The day before that was 8. The day before that was 29, so they’re very aware of who I am by my cell phone number,” Good said.
“This letter acts as written notice of our expectation for you to discontinue your unwarranted telephone calls and office visits,” the notice reads. “If you fail to comply with this notice, then we will have no other alternative but to contact the United States Capitol Police and report your noncompliance.”
Good said he started calling the senator’s office after President Donald Trump’s inauguration because he had concerns about Trump’s Cabinet nominations, privatizing the Department of Veterans Affairs, and Russian hacking.
A spokesperson in Johnson’s office told the TV station Good was only the second person to receive that type of letter.
“Unfortunately, very infrequently a pattern of inappropriate behavior emerges that crosses the bounds of decency and requires action to ensure the well being of visitors to the office and staff,” the spokesperson said.
