Jury Deliberates in Republican's Election Day Phone Abuse Case

The jury is out in the case of a former Republican Party official who is accused of setting up a scheme on election day to jam the telephones of people trying to get out the votes of Democrats. According to Yahoo News here, it may have been difficult on election day to get a ride to the polls in some parts of New Hampshire, because of jammed telephone lines.  It seems that someone was making hang-up calls.  It is one thing to make hangup calls, but calls that directly effect the electoral process make the conduct here more than just a nuisance.
