Election fraud continued

Bush's former New England campaign chairman, James Tobin, was indicted yesterday on charges he took part in the jamming of Democrats' get-out-the-vote phone lines on Election Day 2002. Federal prosecutors said Tobin and other Republicans had hired a company to make 800 computer-generated "hang-up" calls to jam phone lines and disrupt the Democrats' efforts.

If convicted, Tobin faces up to five years in prison. Tobin's response: "I am saddened to learn that this action has been taken against me. I have great respect for the justice system and plan to fight back to clear my name."

Hmmm...that doesn't sound like a protest of innocence, exactly.
