Maine governor Paul LePage
has ordered the state's Labor Department to remove a mural he says is too pro-labor
. He has also declared several of the building's conference room names to have "one-sided decor." This was reportedly at the behest of anonymous businesses who complained of a pro-labor bias.
An anonymous fax
released by the governor's office complains, "In studying the mural I also observed that this mural is nothing but propaganda to further the agenda of the Union movement. I felt for a moment that I was in communist North Korea where they use these murals to brainwash the masses."
Muralist Judy Taylor said in response, "There was never any intention to be pro-labor or anti-labor. It was a pure depiction of the facts." The artist's website has a page describing the mural
, including identifying what's going on in each panel.
