Ehrlich camp paid $14,000 to robocall operative

ANNAPOLIS — The campaign of former Maryland governor Robert Ehrlich has reported paying $14,000 in the final days of the governor’s race to a political operative who says he sent robocalls on Election Day suggesting Democrats didn’t need to vote.

The latest payments to Julius Henson’s companies were reported in a finance report made public Tuesday. They bring the total that Ehrlich’s campaign spent on his services to $111,150 this year.

Ehrlich, a Republican, has not commented on the robocalls.

Maryland Attorney General Douglas Gansler, a Democrat, has filed a civil complaint in federal court, alleging the calls were intended to suppress voter turnout and violated federal law.
