GOP Paying Legal Bills of Bush Official

The Republican Party has paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to provide private defense lawyers for former Bush campaign official James Tobin, who has been charged with conspiring to keep Democrats from voting in New Hampshire. This comes despite the GOP’s zero-tolerance policy on tampering with voters.

Since charges were first filed in December, the RNC has spent more than $722,000 to provide Tobin, who has pleaded innocent, a team of lawyers from the high-powered Washington law firm of Williams & Connolly.

The GOP’s filings with the FEC list the payments to Williams & Connolly without specifying they were for Tobin’s defense.
