A Political Prosecution

Forbes, Steve
June 2006
Forbes Asia;6/19/2006, Vol. 2 Issue 11, p11
The author comments on the decision of the court in the conspiracy case of James Tobin, a Republican operative and the northeast field representative for the National Republican Senatorial Committee in the 2002 U.S. congressional elections. Tobin was sentenced for supposedly being part of a conspiracy that blocked some incoming calls to Democratic phone banks that were arranging transportation for voters on Election Day 2002. The author argues that Tobin did not participate in the activity and that Judge Steven McAuliffe made a wrong decision.
