Was there an orchestrated traffic jam?

...and if so, was it illegal?

Seth Gitell earlier wrote a piece in the Boston Phoenix alleging back in the 2000 New Hampshire primaries, Al Gore's campaign orchestrated a traffic jam to prevent Bradley from winning the state. Verification of this allegation is difficult since all he provided was an anecdote from a book published later, and no name and quotes. Did he, or didn't he, we don't know, and we don't know if the campaigners were puffing up an urban legend. But Gitell stands by the story, but he points out that it doesn't compare to illegally jamming phone banks to achieve the same thing.
