A Republican elector who has been bombarded with irate letters, emails and phone calls from Hillary Clinton voters has slammed the left’s efforts at influencing electors as a “coup d’etat” attempt to “overturn a fair and legal election”.
Alan Braun, a Republican elector from Des Moines, Iowa, blasted the move as a partisan ploy and refused to be affected by it.
“What the Hamilton Electors are suggesting amounts to a coup d’etat to overturn a fair and legal election. I refuse to co-operate with them,” he tweeted.

Braun has been keeping track of the number of letters he has received from leftists as part of the organized campaign to convince, and in some cases intimidate, electors out of voting for Trump. Numerous others have complained about receiving death threats.
On one day, Braun recieved no less than 58 letters and a FedEx package. Yesterday, he received a staggering 96 letters.
Another 58 letters plus a FedEx pkg yesterday. Don’t even have time to open them, much less read them. Who’s paying for all this?

Today’s mail: 96 more letters, a https://t.co/kqjGBv9caW petition with 23890 signatures & a phone caller who screamed about Russia for 5 min

Braun also complained about receiving a phone call from someone “who screamed about Russia for 5 min”.
The bombardment seems to have only succeeded in irriating Braun, not changing his mind.
“I’m an elector for Iowa. I don’t care what people in other states think, especially not people from California who are deluging me with mail,” he tweeted, adding, “Why do people in California and New York think a presidential elector in Iowa cares at all what they think? I represent Iowa, not them.”
