Remember that “labor-themed mural” in the Maine Department of Labor headquarters that wingnut teabagger Paul LePage ordered removed, because his administration hates Maine’s working families?
The U.S. Department of Labor says Gov. Paul LePage violated the terms of a federal grant when he removed a labor-themed mural from a state office building last month. Now the federal government, which paid most of the mural’s $60,000 cost, wants its money back.
This is turning into a real mess for the governor. He should learn that the real way to let a painting know “you mean business” is to punch it while it’s hanging, not take it down. [Kennebec Journal]
