Maine Governor Moves out of Office Over TV Dispute

Thursday, 23 May 2013 03:11 PM

 

Maine's governor has temporarily moved out of his office at the State House and is working from the governor's mansion because of a dispute over a television.

Gov. Paul LePage is threatening to move for good by July 1. His move stems from a disagreement over a television screen in the hall outside his State House office. The screen notes the number of days since LePage introduced two legislative priorities that he wants lawmakers to act on. Legislative officials say no political messages are permitted outside State House offices.

The state Senate's Democratic leader calls LePage's move disappointing and frustrating. LePage, in turn, accuses Democrats of a pattern of toxic censorship.

LePage has drawn attention previously for telling the NAACP to "kiss my butt" and comparing the IRS to the Gestapo.
