Bill Cosby is Rolley’s ‘Hail Mary’

Baltimore, Maryland, mayoral hopeful Otis Rolley stepped up his game Wednesday when he enlisted the help of the famed comedian and activist, Bill Cosby, with this campaign.

Rolley appeared with Cosby at a West Baltimore senior living apartment complex and let the comedian do what he does best — crack jokes with the building’s residents. The two then went door to door in Loch Raven hoping to gain support, and Cosby even gave a shout out to Rolley at a crowded Coppin State University rally.

Rolley, considered less favorable among potential voters than the forerunner candidate, current Mayer Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, met Cosby through a mutual friend and hoped his acquaintance would help with approval ratings. With decision day looming, Rolley claims the next few days will consist of a whirlwind of door-knocking and calling residents in an attempt to secure their votes…and likely some finger crossing that Cosby was the ‘Hail Mary’ he needed to pull ahead.
