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.
