THE MAINE FORUM – FIRST AMENDMENT CASE (Part 1)

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

My name is Dottie Lafortune. I produced and hosted a public access t.v. talk show, The Maine Forum, from April 18, 2001 to July 2002 when (now former mayor) Donna Dion and (now former city councilor) Jim Grattelo banned me from Biddeford Public Access. My reasons for going public was due to the controlled mainstream media’s refusal to print or broadcast the truth that people had a right to know. I was tired of having issues brushed under the rug. The Maine Forum was a vehicle used to educate and inform the public on issues that involved everyone at the local, county, state and federal levels. It was time to take a stand for my (our) rights before we no longer had any rights left. Many wonderful and interesting people from Maine to California were guests on my program.

The July 4, 2001 program “What Price Justice?’ featured Philip Castora, a licensed Private Investigator, who gave a report containing his opinions and conclusions with respect to various public documents relative to his investigation into fraudulent confiscations of property through the concerted actions of city officials, bankers, the courts…….and let’s not forget William Zafirson, HAZA Auctioneer who went crying to the mayor because I mentioned his name on my program. William Zafirson complaint.

A copy of “What Price Justice?” was mailed out to many of you out there and you know the contents of the broadcast. It’s time for public exposure of this First Amendment violation.

In the coming weeks I will detail the MCLU’s involvement in the filing of a complaint against the city, the journey through the court system and the results. I will detail the subsequent actions taken against me in order to prevent me from the use of Biddeford’s Public Access.
