Indictment Against Former RNC Official
An indictment was filed today in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Hampshire, against the former New England Regional Director of the Republican National Committee. The indictment in United States v. Tobin can be found here. It alleges that James Tobin engaged in a conspiracy to disrupt Democratic get-out-the-vote efforts in 2002, by hiring an Idaho telemarketing firm to repeatedly call and hang up on the phone banks operated by the Democratic Party and Manchester Firefighters. According to the indictment, several hundred calls were made on November 5, 2002. It alleges a conspiracy to make interstate phone calls "with intent to annoy and harass," in violation of 47 U.S.C. 223(a)(1)(D).
