Gov. Paul LePage, our dictatorial meddler-in-chief, continues to act as if he were still the boss at Marden’s, and that all Maine state officials and employees were his personal hirelings, who must instantly do his bidding or they will, as he has put it in the past, “feel his wrath.”

I applaud and respect Attorney General Janet Mills for her proper and principled stand in refusing to act against what she and her staff concluded was the appropriate legal course the state should take just because the governor had an axe to grind.

I urge all other state officials faced with similar pressure to stand their ground and not allow LePage’s bullying tactics and interferences control them.

And they should simply ignore LePage’s rantings and ravings because these are merely, as Shakespeare put it, “full of sound and fury, signifying nothing”.
