A political aide to Maryland's former Republican governor has been sentenced to 30 days of home detention for an Election Day robocall conspiracy that prosecutors cast as an effort to keep black voters away from the polls.
Prosecutors had said the automated calls went out to 110,000 people in areas with high percentages of black voters, who tend to vote reliably Democratic. The calls implied that voters did not need to head to the polls because Democrat Martin O'Malley had already defeated Republican Robert Ehrlich.
The judge on Thursday also ordered Paul Schurick to serve 500 hours of community service in Prince George's County and Baltimore city, where the calls were directed, over four years of his probation.
