Baltimore political campaign consultant Julius Henson, who was convicted of a minor campaign violation, was convicted of violating his probation by running for the Md. State Senate! According to the court Mr. Henson was "prohibited from working on, or volunteering in any political election campaign". Mr. Henson argued that he was not in violation, because he would not be working for, or volunteering in any campaign, but would actually be running himself. The stipulation did not say he could not run for office. Is this splitting hairs or what? Oh yeah, Mr Henson received a 4 month sentence which was stayed pending his appeal. If he loses the appeal he has to turn himself in and serve 4 months. This case documents the return of a frightening trend, in the state and federal courts, i.e., circumvention and subversion of the law by judges! What say y'all?
