James Tobin, President George W. Bush's 2004 campaign chairman, is quietly having his court cost payed by the Republican Party. The case before the
court could amount to 4 felony charges and involve two other Republican officials. The Republican Party chairman, Ken Mehlman, talks like it's just
friends helping friends. The amount paid so far is $770,000. There may be more to the story than meets the eye.
The Republican Party has quietly paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to provide private defense lawyers for a former Bush campaign official charged
with conspiring to keep Democrats from voting in one northeastern state's Senate race.
James Tobin, President George W. Bush's 2004 campaign chairman for the northeastern US, is charged with four felonies accusing him of conspiring with
two other Republican officials to jam Democratic and labor union get-out-the-vote phone banks ahead of the 2002 elections.
A telephone company was paid to make repeated hang-up phone calls to overwhelm the phone banks in the state of New Hampshire and prevent them from
getting Democratic voters to the polls on Election Day 2002, prosecutors allege. Republican John Sununu won a close race that day to be New
Hampshire's newest senator.
At the time, Tobin was the party's northeastern regional director, before moving on to President Bush's 2004 re-election campaign.

As I see it, at $770,000, I should have such friends. The amount is so much that you'd think a higher up is being covered for. You'd have to think,
are they buying Tobin's silence with money to cover his defense in the criminal and civil suit?
