Republicans Try A Different Approach to The Firefighters’ Union

Views

The NY Times notes today that National RNC Chair Ken Mehlman addressed the firefighters’ union yesterday, making his pitch for the union vote.

It’s a slightly different approach than the Republicans tried in 2002 in New Hampshire, when they hired a company to jam the phone lines of the firefighters’ union up there, along with several Democratic offices, in order to sabotage their get-out-the-vote efforts. RNC New England Regional Director James Tobin was convicted in December for his role in that scheme and will be sentenced May 17th.

It’s just a process of trial and error, you might say.
