Da White House Be Jammin'

Just when you think the White House Scandalometer can’t go any higher, here comes yet another one. This article from the A.P. describes the first hard evidence of a White House connection to one of many so-called "voting irregularities."
Repeated hang-up calls that jammed telephone lines at a Democratic get-out-the-vote center occurred in a Senate race in which Republican John Sununu defeated Democrat Jeanne Shaheen, 51 percent to 46 percent, on Nov. 5, 2002.
The records show that Bush campaign operative James Tobin, who recently was convicted in the case, made two dozen calls to the White House within a three-day period around Election Day 2002 — as the phone jamming operation was finalized, carried out and then abruptly shut down.
Virtually all the calls to the White House went to the same number, which currently rings inside the political affairs office. In 2002, White House political affairs was led by now-RNC chairman Ken Mehlman.
Anyone still think that George W. Bush won the Presidency through a fair election process? No cheating? Character matters? Bringing integrity to the Oval Office? Pigs Flying?

  1. I keep thinking that maybe it is not all as bad as it seems. Maybe all of the conspiracy theories are just talk.

    But it seems that all of them are even worse than the speculation.

    I wonder what stuff we don't know about yet? or will never know about.

    sorry to push this down the page so soon but Bush today was more pathetic than usual.
