Ehrlich addresses robocalls
Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr., also a former governor, told The Annapolis Capital the calls were "done outside of my purview." He didn't elaborate, but it was the most he's said to date about the calls.
Ehrlich's campaign paid Democratic operative Julius Henson $111K for "community outreach" a role that seems to have included organizing over one hundred thousand calls to Democratic parts of the state informing voters to "relax" because Democratic Gov. Martin O'Malley had already won.
Henson says the calls were meant to encourage people to vote. The state's Attorney General has filed a civil lawsuit accusing Henson of voter intimidation and vote suppression.
