Officials raid Ehrlich consultant's home
State investigators gathered evidence Friday morning at the Baltimore home of political consultant Julius Henson as part of an ongoing probe of election-night robocalls, WBAL television in Baltimore is reporting.
Henson, who has taken responsibility for the anonymous calls, was paid more than $111,000 by the losing campaign of former governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R). In the calls, made while the polls were still open, a woman's voice told listeners they could "relax" because Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) had already been successful.
The Office of the Maryland State Prosecutor, which has jurisdiction over election-law violations, has been looking into the episode for several weeks, according to people who have been contacted by the office.
