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.

  1. For the love of God and the American Constitution, let me speak to you personally. Send your telephone/address/or other means to my E-mail, I have REAMS of information on the disembowelment of the First Amendment in the State of Maine and an interesting wrinkle on due process that will serve as the KEY to understanding why you and I and the rest of this great country are swimming in a sewer.

    • Juliet, just ran across this comment. Sorry it’s been awhile. At this point, what can be done?

  2. Not sure what can be done. I’ve been screaming that question for quite a few years, now. However, we did get Trump and I believe he is attempting to turn many a wrong thing around…haven’t heard boo about the rampant payola schemes, other than a few about Killery and willy. And of course, both bill and barrack somehow got very rich while being presidents…hmmm…I’m at the point where the only donations should be those that go to politicians during their campaigning. All other contributions to a politician should be stopped. Of course, places that truly need help such as the VA, would still be heard via words only…letters, tweets, fb posts, emails, etc.

    • I have written to President Trump several times about different issues…..we shall see!

  3. Have story to share. Plz contact me.
