the republican attitude to elections, on trial

Another example of the rather cynical GOP view about elections is their phone-jamming against the Democrats in New Hampshire in 2002. Now a court has ruled that NH Democrats can try to have GOP officials be deposed in their lawsuit to see what connections there were between the local GOP and the White House.

This control-freak White House almost certainly was aware of this illegal operation at some level. Be interesting to see what comes out.

Remember, the GOP supports freedom to vote only for its supporters, and only because in the modern age they need a veneer of democracy to perpetuate their pro-rich ruling system.
