He should resign too...

Feds warn Maine DOL that LePage administration interfered in hearing process

AUGUSTA — A federal investigation has found that Maine's governor and Labor Department officials intervened in unemployment hearings in a way that could have swayed hearing officers to favor employers over claimants.

An April 11, 2013, Sun Journal investigative report cited sources who said Gov. Paul LePage had summoned Labor Department employees to a mandatory luncheon at the Blaine House on March 21 and scolded them for finding too many unemployment-benefit appeals cases in favor of workers. They were told they were doing their jobs poorly, sources said.

U.S. Labor Department investigation concluded that the administration acted with "what could be perceived as a bias toward employers" and hearing officers could have interpreted expectations that they had to be more sympathetic toward employers.

I'm sure every Tea Partier is happy with LePage's actions, that is, until what he does/did negatively affect them.
