Yesterday, Ken Mehlman said that none of those 100-plus calls by phone-jamming conspirators to the White House Office of Political Affairs "involved discussion of the phone-jamming incident."
But, as Josh pointed out, James Tobin worked both for the Republican National Committee and National Republican Senatorial Committee at the time. Surely Mehlman, who's Chairman of the RNC, would be in a position to vouch for the similar innocence of his employees there. We wonder in particular about Terry Nelson, who made the government's witness list.
So I called the RNC, left a message, called and emailed the NRSC's press secretary, and called Terry Nelson's consulting firm, left a message. Radio silence all around. Chris Lacivita, who worked for the NRSC in 2002 and also made the government's witness list, is a hard man to track down. A call to DCI Group, where he is supposed to work, only elicited a promise that they'd look for his contact info - the woman who answered the phone wouldn't even admit that Lacivita actually worked there.
So it looks like we'll just have to keep asking.
