Maine Labor To Stay In The Closet

From the Bangor Daily News
BANGOR, Maine — A federal judge refused Friday to order Gov. Paul LePage to return a mural depicting the history of labor to a state office building in Augusta.
U.S. District Court Judge John Woodcock agreed with LePage that the removal of the mural was “a constitutionally permissible exercise of gubernatorial authority.”

LePage ordered the mural removed last month because he said it presented a one-sided view of history and wasn’t in keeping with his pro-business agenda.

  1. Isn't it interesting how the Republicans are systemtically getting rid of unions and rewriting history along the way?

    They should be ashamed of themselves! Taking down a piece of history because it doesn't fit LaPages world view is plain wrong.

    What next? Is there something else in our history this idiot has a problem with? He's Maine's version of Big Brother.
