The mainstream media is at it again. Out to destroy, defame, demonize good people once more with the help of Mike Tipping, columnist and blogger for the Portland Press Herald and Bangor Daily News.
PPH reports “Mike Tipping’s book, which “will be published this month by Tilbury House, a small Maine publisher, is causing a stir in Maine political circles with its claims that Gov. Paul LePage held a series of meetings last year with individuals associated with a conspiracy group.”
It has the appearance of political maneuvering. It’s easy to get your side of the story out when you’re in bed with the media.
BDN reports “Senate President Justin Alfond called LePage’s ongoing meetings with members of the Constitutional Coalition, “disturbing and irresponsible. The FBI were notified by legislative staff members, a joint release issued by Alfond and Speaker Eves stated.” The article also notes “Tipping, works as communications director for the liberal Maine People’s Alliance.”
“Alexander Willette, a spokesman for LePage’s campaign, dismissed Tipping and his book, saying the campaign would not respond to the book’s claims. This book is just a ploy for attention from the author, who seems desperate to pull the wool over the people’s eyes and sell more of his books.”
Neither Mr. Tipping’s book, nor the media reports, deserve a response, although many questions arise. Is this group being used to target Governor LePage?
Just to note, Mike Tipping is Communications Director for The Maine Peoples’ Alliance. Allies/Partners include League of Women Voters of Maine and Maine Citizens for Clean Elections.
The scales are tipped when only one side of a story is reported.
Why would legislative staff members contact the FBI when Alfond, Eves and other legislators refused to meet with these constituents? How did the staff determine and justify calling these good people “extremists”, “terrorists” and all other names they could conjure up if they didn’t meet with them? Did the PPH or BDN interview the people they are reporting about and who met with Governor LePage?
Let’s balance the scale.
This is just another layer on the onion of official corruption as it goes on to new heights.
Why haven’t any Maine officials/law enforcement called upon the FBI to investigate the following issues, for starters:
As you view these documents, please be aware that under the Baldacci(D) administration, charges were trumped up against good, honest, decent people who volunteered on this campaign.
The following was sent to Andrew Boisse, Executive Director, Maine Citizens for Clean Elections and Barbara McDade, President, The League of Women Voters of Maine. No response has been received. Click here.

The layer on the onion of official corruption has been ongoing for decades. Where were our elected representatives?
MOST POWERFUL, REVEALING VIDEO BY TOM DUNN, click here.
When Angus King was Governor of Maine, this video was hand-delivered to him, as well as Governor John Baldacci. This was/is a threat to the people of Maine. Why did they not speak out or take action? Take note of who remained in office. View more documents HERE.
The refusal/failure of elected officials to act upon these crimes and the refusal of the media to report on these frauds perpetrated against the people is an attack on all Mainers.
WAKE UP, PEOPLE!
