TULSA, Okla. (AP) — A Virginia man has been charged with cyberstalking the mayor of Tulsa in a failed effort to stop President Donald Trump’s campaign rally there last month.
Adam Maxwell Donn, of Norfolk, Virginia, sent emails and left voicemails for Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum and his wife in which he harassed, threatened and tried to intimidate Bynum into cancelling the June 20 rally by Trump, prosecutors allege in federal court documents unsealed Friday from the Eastern District of Virginia.
Donn’s attorney, Jeffery Swartz, did not immediately reply to a Saturday phone message seeking comment.
Between June 11-22, Donn threatened to go to Bynum’s home, church and his wife’s office in addition to publishing the mayor’s children’s cellphone numbers on social media, U.S. Attorney Trent Shores said in a statement.
Authorities also allege Donn masqueraded as Bynum’s wife and sent threatening emails through her business account to her colleagues.
