Maine Speaker of the House Mark Eves (D) accused Gov. Paul LePage (R) of absuing his power in order to fire him from the position of president of Good Will-Hinckley School, WCSH reports.
“Eves alleges that LePage threatened the Good Will-Hinckley School to either fire him or lose over $500,000 in budgeted state funds and thereby lose another $2,000,000 in private funding. Eves’ lawyer David Webbert said they have the threat in writing.”
Said Eves: “It is a new, dark day in Maine politics. This is why people hate politics. The governor has stepped outside of the political world into my personal life and my ability to provide for my family. It’s extremely upsetting.”Save to Favorites
