Investigators for the state prosecutor have raided the home and office of a political consultant who organized phony robo-calls in the Maryland governor's race.
Agents carried boxes from the home of Julius Henson on Friday, reportedly gathering for evidence of election law violations.
Henson ordered more than 100,000 robo-calls telling voters to stay home on Election Day because Gov. Martin O'Malley had already won.
Henson was paid more than $100,000 to do "community outreach" for Republican candidate Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s campaign. Ehrlich has declined to comment on the robo-calls.
Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler has filed a civil lawsuit against Henson, alleging voter intimidation and vote suppression.
Henson says the calls were not intended to suppress the vote.
