NH: Doing time for election fraud!!! NH Republican
Well, if this is a 'mixed verdict' then I'm an academic! What is this all about. The guy is going "upstate" as we used to say in NY (or "downstate" as we say in VA) for some serious time. He's guilty, he did it. That's not all they did. Remember, NH was the "belle weather" for the Republican "surprise" in 2004--and what was it, 8% outside the margin of error in the exit polls...

Jurors Return Mixed Verdict in Election Phone-Jamming Case Against Ex-GOP Official



CONCORD, N.H. Dec 15, 2005 A former top Republican Party official was convicted on telephone harassment charges Thursday for his part in a plot to jam the Democrats' phones on Election Day 2002.

(Tobin, 45, faces seven years in jail and $500,000 in fines upon sentencing.).
For nearly two hours on Election Day 2002, hundreds of hang-up calls overwhelmed Democratic get-out-the-vote phone banks in New Hampshire and a ride-to-the-polls line run by Manchester's firefighters union.

Tobin, who at the time was New England chairman of Bush's re-election campaign and a top regional official of the Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee, was accused of orchestrating the phone-jamming.
