    Maryland's attorney general has filed a complaint in federal court against a political operative for a robocall sent on Election Day that allegedly aimed to dissuade Democratic voters from going to the polls.

    Attorney General Doug Gansler filed the complaint against Julius Henson, his company Universal Elections Inc., and Rhonda Russell, an employee of the company.

    The complaint alleges more than 112,000 calls of a prerecorded telephone message were made. The complaint said the calls failed to identify who was responsible for sending them and a phone number for reaching the sender. Gansler said that violates the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

    The defendants could be fined $500 for each violation.
