MILWAUKEE (AP) — A Milwaukee man who acknowledges aggressively contacting U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson's office — including calling 83 times in one day — has received a "cease and desist" warning.

Earl Good says the letter from the Wisconsin Republican's office tells him to communicate only in writing and to stop "unwarranted telephone calls and office visits." Johnson's staff members also warn in the Feb. 17 letter that they will contact U.S. Capitol police if Good doesn't comply.

Good tells WDJT-TV ( ) that he's a Democrat and a concerned citizen. He says he started placing scores of phone calls to Johnson to voice his opinion after President Trump's inauguration.

Johnson spokesman Ben Voelkel said Wednesday he's unaware of any further incidents involving Good.

Good declined comment to The Associated Press.
