More Republican Hypocrisy.

Just days after RNC Chairman Ken Mehlman stated that the GOP has a “zero-tolerance” policy against voter fraud, intimidation, and suppression, the Republican Party spent more than $722,000 to defend a former Bush election official who has been accused to conspiring to keep Democrats from voting.

The RNC is flipping the legal bills for James Tobin, a former RNC official, who is charged with 4 felonies accusing him of conspiring with a state Republican operative and a Virginia based consultant to jam Democratic and labor union get-out-the-vote phone banks in November 2002.

Tobin’s two other associates have already plead guilty and federal prosecutors have secured testimony from them directly implicating Tobin. After his role in the 2002 scandal, Mehlman hired Tobin to be the Bush-Cheney 2004 campaign chairman for New England.
