Think of the haters in your life as sandpaper; they’ll scratch you up time and time again but in the end you’re polished, smooth, and spotless..while they end up useless

Time to lawyer up and get a restraining order.
Believe it or not, most county websites have very helpful information on them. You might start there!
I'm not as concerned about the emails being sent to you, text you can have them sent directly to your junk folder, As I am about the abuse being perpetrated on your kids.
I would like to believe that they would take the case from there.
First they suggested that I post and send an order of no trespass. This doesn't seem to be your issue. But they also advised me to put in writing that he was not to contact me in any way and spell out completely all the possible ways he had been doing that, and then send it to him certified. And email him too. Some examples of what he was doing were, sending cards and letters, leaving letters on my car and under rocks in my yard, sending flowers, calling my friends to have them talk me into dating him again, waiting for me in my work parking lot, posting poems meant for me in letters to the editor and on and on. This went on for years. So I listed every last option and demanded it stop. While he didn't accept the letter, he did open the email and responded to it indignantly. I had him.
I then went to my local States Attorney. They are the ones that decide who does or doesn't get prosecuted. The States Attorney now not only had a list of all the inappropriate contact, but he had proof that he got it, read it and didn't intend to stop. He prosecuted him for stalking. It didn't cost me a dime. You elect your States Attorney so he serves you. While he can't give you free legal services, he can hear you out and take action if he thinks it's warranted under your state's statutes.
I was granted a two year restraining order. And then automatic weapons became legal in my state. He wanted one and couldn't get one with an active restraining order so he took me back to court to get it rescinded. At that point our States Attorney represented me at the hearing of his own accord. He was appalled and the judge refused to rescind it.
What you're going through is not unlike what I went through. It's just a different relationship dynamic. You should not have to be subjected to unwanted contact. You just have to do all the homework and then get someone who will listen. Be relentless. And I hate to say this, but you may have to have similar restriction put on WH. She should not be allowed to be her mouthpiece.
