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.
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.
