Well, obviously this could devolve into partisan politics, but, let's assume that these are merely Party A and Party B. What happens when Party A gets a little bit overzealous?


James Tobin of Bangor, Maine, was found guilty in December on two telephone harassment charges. He also faces up to a $500,000 fine. His lawyers have asked for a new trial, and on Monday, they filed a motion objecting to a sentencing document filed by prosecutors.

Tobin, 45, stepped down as New England chairman of President Bush's re-election campaign in 2004 when Democrats accused him of playing a role in the jamming on Election Day 2002. That's when Republican John Sununu won a hotly contested U.S. Senate race against then-Gov. Jeanne Shaheen.

Former GOP official to be sentenced on phone-jamming charges

I found this part very interesting "That's when Republican John Sununu won a hotly contested U.S. Senate race against then-Gov. Jeanne Shaheen." I wonder if there has been any analysis into the effects of James Tobin's activities on the race for governor.
