Maine Gov. LePage Refuses to Talk to 3 Newspapers
A spokesperson for the administration said that responses from the administration could be gleaned from reports by The Associated Press or through document requests using the Freedom of Access Act.
Gov. Paul LePage's administration will no longer comment in stories published by the Portland Press Herald, the Kennebec Journal and the Morning Sentinel, his spokeswoman said Tuesday.
The new policy follows the newspapers' publication of a three-day series of articles this week examining LePage's top environmental regulator and how her department's actions have benefited her former lobbying clients in private industry.
