A judge has ruled that a political consultant convicted in a robocall conspiracy violated his probation by filing to run for state Senate.
A political consultant who was convicted in a robocall conspiracy in the last Maryland governor's election filed to run for a Baltimore state Senate seat on Thursday.
Julius Henson, who was convicted in a case involving robocalls on Election Day in 2010, says he is running for the General Assembly.
A Republican campaign consultant was convicted Friday of conspiracy for 2010 robocalls that prosecutors said were aimed at keeping black voters from the polls during Maryland's gubernatorial election.
A judge ruled Monday that Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings won't have to provide documents sought by attorneys for Paul Schurick, who is accused of trying to use an Election Day robocall to suppress the black vote in Maryland's 2010 governor's race while he was an aide to former Gov. Robert Ehrlich. But the judge ruled Cummings must be available as a trial witness.
A top political aide and a consultant to former Maryland Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. were indicted Thursday for arranging robocalls last Election Day that prosecutors say attempted to deceive opposing voters.
"I'm a candidate, not a volunteer, so I have not a single clue as to why I'm accused of violating probation, but that will be decided on Thursday," Henson told reporters after filing his paperwork.
Henson said he doesn't believe his probation prohibits him from being a candidate.
