Ain't no rules, ain't no vow, we can do it anyhow

Official: Justice Dept. slowed probe into phone jamming

The Justice Department delayed prosecuting a key Republican official for jamming the phones of New Hampshire Democrats until after the 2004 election, protecting top GOP officials from the scandal until the voting was over.

An official with detailed knowledge of the investigation into the 2002 Election-Day scheme said the inquiry sputtered for months after a prosecutor sought approval to indict James Tobin, the northeast regional coordinator for the Republican National Committee.
Oddly enough, voter fraud cases against rethuglicans that ended up being successful were delayed until after the election, but voter fraud cases against Dems, that ended up being unsuccessful were rushed before the election.
