I think it’s significant that James Tobin, who ran Bush/Cheney’s re-election campaign in New England, was indicted for wrongdoing not in that race but in the one two years before. It was the off-year election in 2002 – the Senate race in New Hampshire. So, after the 2004 election, the RNC spends big-time on the legal fees of an operative who stood indicted of malfeasance only in the previous election.
Why does this not a raise a certain question in the press? No inquiring journalist has asked why the Republicans spent so much on Tobin’s legal fees for a crime that he committed in 2002. Would it be improper to suggest that maybe Tobin also broke election laws in 2004, and that the party paid his tab because they wanted him to keep his mouth shut on the subject? Given all the loony speculations that the press was unafraid to air about Bill Clinton – the “murder” of Vince Foster, the secret signal Bill tried to send Monica through his necktie, etc. – why can such a question not be asked about the GOP?
Where is Bill Clinton’s notorious necktie now?
