After an intense battle with Governor Paul LePage, Maine’s legislature passed a budget that included funding for a cold case squad to be formed in Maine. On the first day it could be opened, Gov. LePage published a memo to all state directors that no one one be hired without his approval. I will let that sink in a moment.
What is with this man? What is he afraid of? This is more than just political grandstanding or maneuvering. He is intentionally blocking many departments from functioning without his control. He will put in whom he wants, with his own agenda, or keep certain types out of key positions. What his true motive is, I can’t say, but he is obviously willing to go as far as it takes, his reputation be damned.
Just something to think about.
