PPH reports “Maine’s system of public campaign financing, which has been enormously popular with legislative candidates, appears to be losing its luster. Figures from the state Commission on Governmental Ethics and Election Practices, which oversees campaign financing, show that 63 percent of Maine’s legislative candidates are drawing public funds through the state’s Clean Election Act in this year’s legislative campaign. That compares to 80 percent in the last election cycle and 85 percent in the previous one.”

“I think there has been a drop-off because some candidates are concerned that outside groups will launch negative attacks and there will not be matching funds to counter them,” said Sen. Lois Snowe-Mello, R-Poland.”

Snowe-Mello understood the corruption, and listened to the people, when she was a state representative. Since becoming a Senator, she’s deaf, dumb and blind…..another Barry Hobbins! What a big disappointment in Lois Snowe-Mello.

Maybe there’s a “drop-off” because good, honest, decent people don’t want to find themselves with trumped up charges……not to mention the election fraud that goes on when good people run!
