What the "mainstream media" is leaving out of reports about "Ehrlich's robocall"

Julius Henson, who almost always represents Democratic candidates, has often been in the news for his dirty tricks on behalf of Democrats and no-holds-barred approach to campaigns, something most of the "mainstream media" seems to have forgotten to report in connection with the robocall currently in the news.

In late 2002, Henson said (as quoted in the Tuscaloosa News, 1 Jan 2003):

"Bobby Ehrlich is a Nazi. ...  He should be running in German in 1942, not Maryland in 2002.  We'll define him as the Nazi he is.  Once we do that, I think people will vote for Kathleen Kennedy Townsend."

Thus spake Democratic political consultant Julius Henson about congressman Robert Ehrlich ...

Henson's clients have included
  • Elijah Cummings
  • Sam Dean
  • Tom Dernoga
  • Jim Estepp
  • Camille Exum
  • Parris Glendenning
  • Glenn Ivey
  • Tony Knotts
  • Douglas Peters
  • Justin Ross
  • Kathleen Kennedy Townsend
  • Michael Vaughn
  • Albert Wynn

  1. The Washington Post stories on these robocalls describe Henson as "a longtime Democratic operative" and "a political operative notorious for past dirty tricks on behalf of Democratic and Republican candidates". Are you suggesting there be an investigation of Henson tactics for Democratic candidates? Do those tactics rise to the level of what he did for Ehrlich?
