BALTIMORE – Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake denounced a serious of misleading automated phone calls intended to suppress democratic voter turnout by targeting Baltimore City residents. The call urges voters to “relax” and stay home because “President Obama and Governor O’Malley have been successful” even before the polls officially close at 8:00pm.
“I was deeply troubled to hear this misleading robo call targeting Baltimore City residents urging them to relax and stay home as if the the election was over and the polls have been closed,” Rawlings-Blake said. “Sadly, this kind of gutter politics that we have come to expect from Bob Ehrlich and the Republican Party. In 2006, Bob Ehrlich’s campaign distributed intentionally false and misleading fliers intended to confuse minority voters and today they’ve reached a new low.”
Woman’s Voice: “I’m calling to let everyone know that Governor O’Malley and President Obama have been successful. Our Goals have been met. The Polls were correct and we’re ok. Relax, everything is fine. The only thing left is to watch on TV tonight. Congratulations and Thank you.”
