"Governor Sends ‘Threatening’ Letter To Environmental Donors"

"Gov. Paul LePage (R) stepped up his attacks on the Natural Resources Council of Maine (NRCM) in dramatic fashion this week by sending personal letters to the environmental group’s donors."

'I would request that you carefully review NRCM’s policy positions before donating to them in the future,' the governor wrote, after directing members of his staff to find addresses of donors posted in the environmental organization’s public documents. 'It is an activist group that says ‘no’ to every opportunity to allow Mainers to prosper.'

Unsurprisingly, the group and its donors were outraged."
