More on Tobin
At least one local Republican thinks that spending more than $700,000 to defend the alleged mastermind of a Republican voter suppression effort may have been a bad move for the national party.
A New Hampshire member of the Republican National Committee said she has misgivings about the committee's role in defending a GOP operative accused of conspiring to suppress Democratic votes in the 2002 election.
Another interesting bit from this article is the attempt to keep this support out of the public eye.
The RNC tried to keep a lid on its support for Tobin.
Last month, RNC spokesman Aaron McLear refused to say whether the RNC was paying Tobin's legal bills when the New Hampshire Union Leader presented evidence that it was, the paper reported Friday.
McLear, after checking with RNC lawyers, refused to answer any questions about Tobin, the paper said.
