BALTIMORE (AP) – The campaign consultant who was convicted in a case involving robocalls in on Election Day in 2010 says he wants to run for the state legislature.
Julius Henson, who served a 30-day jail term in 2012 after being convicted of conspiracy, tells WBAL-TV (http://bit.ly/1eppoW5) that he wants to run for state Senate.
Henson said on Tuesday that he wants to represent Baltimore in the 45th District. That seat is held by Sen. Nathaniel McFadden, who has represented the district since 1995.
Henson says voters will look beyond his past.
Prosecutors alleged that the robocalls, made to about 110,000 Democratic voters in Baltimore and Prince George's County, were aimed at keeping black voters from the polls during Maryland's gubernatorial election.
