While LePage has consistently proven himself to be a bully, often embarrassing the people of Maine with his statements and actions, a new federal investigation has found that, under LePage, the Maine Department of Labor endangered the fairness of unemployment hearings.
This is an egregious politicization of what should be a fair and impartial system to determine unemployment benefits - an earned benefit.
Just last week, Maine's Government Oversight Committee unanimously subpoenaed employees of Maine's Center for Disease Control as part of an investigation into whether or not senior officials ordered an employee to shred public documents.
Citizens should have a government free from corruption - or even the appearance of corruption. Clearly, the LePage Administration has been anything but open, transparent or free from malfeasance.
It's time for Governor LePage to resign.
