Officials raid Ehrlich consultant's home

By John Wagner

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.

Read more about the investigation into robocalls linked an Ehrlich campaign consultant on the Maryland Politics blog.
