CONCORD, N.H. — Prosecutors have won a new indictment against a former official of President Bush´s 2004 re-election campaign for alleged misconduct during the 2002 election.
The indictment renders moot multiple motions to dismiss filed by James Tobin _ motions scheduled to be heard in U.S. District Court on Friday. Tobin, of Bangor, Maine, will have to enter a new plea to the revised charges.
The new indictment charges Tobin with conspiring to deny New Hampshire residents their constitutional right to vote through a phone-jamming operation on Election Day 2002. The former indictment charged him with conspiring to annoy and harass voters by telephone.
I agree with Josh Marshall: You'd think the Majority Leader would at least agree to answer what if anything he knew about it.
