New York City police infiltrated political groups almost a year before the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York, according to recently released documents.

The documents came to light after a judge ordered the material to be released in response to a lawsuit filed by the Civil Liberties Union. They show the police monitored e-mail and websites, and that detectives went to cities throughout the country to monitor the activities of groups.
