One Down

Things don't look good for Republican operative James Tobin of Bangor who is charged with jamming Democratic Party telephone lines in New Hampshire in 2002.

One of his alleged accomplices, Allen Raymond, who had plead guilty, was convicted last month. From the Union Leader:
John Durkin, Raymond’s lawyer, portrayed his client as an upstanding citizen who had been taken advantage of by James Tobin, then the northeast political director of the national party committee working to elect Republican senators.

“This was not Allen Raymond’s idea,” Durkin said. “Tobin called on Raymond to do this.”
