Phone jamming case reaches nearer to White House
Some people just don’t trust democracy:
Evidence Mounts Of White House Ties To New Hampshire Phone Jamming Scheme
On the morning of election day 2002, repeated hang-up calls assaulted six phone lines tied to the New Hampshire Democratic Party. Three Republican operatives, including consultant Allen Raymond, eventually ended up in jail for their involvement in the phone jamming scheme. A fourth, former RNC offical James Tobin, will begin a second trial in February.
In his new book, Raymond alleges that the scandal goes “to the top of the Republican Party” because “the Bush White House had complete control of the RNC” and there was no way such a risky tactic wouldn’t have been “vetted by” Tobin’s “high-ups”:
“The Bush White House had complete control of the RNC, and there was no way someone like Tobin was going to try what he was proposing without first getting it vetted by his high-ups,” Raymond wrote in How To Rig an Election, a book set for publication next month. “That’s if Tobin, rather than one of his bosses, had even thought of the ploy himself – which seemed unlikely.”</em>
They had themselves installed by a compliant Supreme Court in 2000, monkeyed with the numbers in 2004 to the extent that once reliable exit polls meant nothing, and now we see more evidence that King George has no use for the cornerstone of our nation, the act of voting. You really couldn’t create a more anti-American group of people if you tried. Disgusting.
