More Corruption by NH-GOP
New Hampshire: This won't help incumbent GOP Senator John Sununu hold onto undecided/independent voters in 2008. The Associated Press reports:
State and national Republicans will pay $135,000 to settle a suit involving a scheme to jam Democratic get-out-the-vote calls on Election Day 2002, officials said Saturday. ...With many 2006 Senate, House, and Gubernatorial races going the Democrats' way in part because of ethics scandals and corruption by the GOP, and NH already trending heavily blue, this is just another nail in the coffin of the NH-GOP and Sununu's re-election chances.
Republicans had hired a telemarketing firm to place hundreds of hang-up calls to phone banks for the Democratic Party and the Manchester firefighters union, a nonpartisan group offering rides to the polls. Service was disrupted for nearly two hours.
