Back in April, Maine Gov. Paul LePage (R) stood up at a breakfast forum and told the crowd that seniors were sending him emails demanding that he stop the minimum wage from going up, the Bangor Daily News reports.
The report piqued the interest of reporter Amy Browne, who filed a Freedom of Access Act request with the governor’s office asking for “any emails received by Governor LePage from people identifying themselves as elderly and in opposition to minimum wage increases.”
“Two months later, on June 26, his office sent her the results: two emails. Neither email author gave their age, nor did they cite the specific and personal sort of concerns that LePage raised in his talk.”Save to Favorites
