From Nancy Tobi:

We are VERY interested in learning about similar events that may have/probably DID occur in other states around the country.

Please let me know if you have any information about phone jamming in the 2002 elections in your state. You will probably only know about this through hearsay, as it didn’t get any coverage until NH started kicking ass.

Nancy Tobi, Vice-Chair

*** FACT SHEET ***

Other 2002 Races Affected By GOP Phone-Jamming Crimes

As links to the RNC, White House, Jack Abramoff, and other national Republican figures bring the 2002 phone-jamming crime back into the public spotlight, we thought it would be helpful to provide a fact sheet about the several of the close NH races (other than the Shaheen-Sununu U.S. Senate race) that were likely affected by the crime.

Manchester (three separate offices jammed)


State Senate District Eight (Claremont):
Republican Bob Odell won by 676 votes.

State Senate District Eighteen (Manchester):
Republican Andy Martel won by 869 votes.

State Rep. District Hilsborough-54 (Manchester Ward 6):
Republican Rep. Luebkert won by 28 votes, after a recount.

Hillsborough County Attorney (Manchester & Nashua):
Republican John Coughlin won by 122 votes, after a recount.

Strafford County Sheriff (Rochester):
Republican Wayne Estes won by 768 votes.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
