Howard Dean knows who done it
Quick background: On the day of the 2002 midterm elections in New Hampshire, the Democratic get-out-the-vote call center was inexplicably flooded with hangups. Their phones were jammed all day and their operation was stalled during the course of the voting. The Democratic incumbent Senator lost by an eyelash to the Republican.
Well, some people did some very good digging and found out that James Tobin, Bush’s New England campaign chairman was behind the whole phone-jamming operation. In addition to the calls he made to the Democratic headquarters, he also called the RNC offices 75 times to say hi in the months before Election Day.
But the clincher came last week. Turns out Tobin called the White House some two dozen times in three days surrounding the election.
