I pointed out a few weeks ago that there is simply no way the GOP would spend $3 million to defend the NH phone jammers unless there was more to it than just a third rate crank phone call.
Does that seem rather like overkill to you? $3 million dollars for an offense--telephone harassment--with a maximum sentence of two years?
Yeah, seems like overkill to me too.
Well, I suspect GOP efforts to cover-up the "more to it" part got more expensive last week. Via TPMmuck, the NH Dems want to depose the people mentioned in the criminal trial with ties higher up the food chain. People like Ed Gillespie, former GOP chair, and the guy who got approval from the White House before he invested that $3 million in covering up the "more to it" part.
Unfortunately, the civil trial takes place too late (November) to have a substantive effect on the election. But as I suggested several weeks ago (and as Karl's presence in NH last week might support), once we tie these state-based cases involving election fraud directly to the national Republican party, we will make progress in demonstrating the fundamental corruption at the core of the conservative movement.
