Gov. Paul LePage Is On The Right Track With Changes To The Attorney General’s Office…But He’s On The Wrong Train

BDN reports “Gov. Paul LePage on Thursday outlined a second-term agenda that ranged from reviving welfare reform proposals that have previously failed to a new initiative aimed at weakening the attorney general’s power.

Changes to the attorney general’s office. LePage and Democratic Attorney General Janet Mills have clashed repeatedly since she was elected to the post two years ago when Democrats regained legislative majorities. LePage said he will pursue legislation to make the position — and possibly the state treasurer and secretary of state, which are also elected by legislators — subject to a statewide vote.”  Read more HERE.

Having a state-wide vote of the attorney general would be in violation of the original Constitution of Maine (1820), ARTICLE V. PART FIRST. EXECUTIVE POWER. Section 8. The only lawful process to achieve the Governor’s goal is for Governor LePage to declare the 1855 resolve to be unlawful as well as null and void. This is the resolve whereby the legislature stole from the Executive department the ability of the governor with the advice and consent of the council to nominate and appoint the attorney general. This is an Executive department function as provided by the original constitution. The attorney general has been unlawfully elected by the legislature since 1856 when the 1855 resolve went into effect.

1855 Resolve

We can hope that the legislators, and the Governor, read, study and understand the constitution in which they took their oath to uphold. Then they, and we the people, can get on board with Governor LePage when the train leaves the station.

  1. I, too, have often mentioned that the 9th Amendment (via Resolve, as Lise has pointed out so well) is actually null and void from the date of enactment. What we need is for the Governor to submit an emergency bill (Resolve) for this to go back out to the People at the next state-wide election, to make the Declaration. But without an educated voting populace, it will never be voted properly, unfortunately.

  2. Hi Wayne,

    If LePage understood the fraudulent 1855 resolve regarding the “theft” of the legislature pertaining to the attorney general, he could make a “formal” declaration to the people stating that the 1855 resolve is fraudulent, and that it has been null and void all along.

    In other words, LePage would throw it out and bring back the attorney general office into the Executive department where it belongs.

    The Executive Council also needs to be brought back to the Executive department.

    The legislature has NO delegation of authority to allow (fake law) the people to vote for the attorney general, secretary of state, treasurer, sheriffs, probate judges, etc.

    If LePage engages in this, then he is a criminal as well as the legislature.

    Thank you!

    • Can the Governor do this without the legislature involved…bring the Attorney General back under his authority?

  3. Hi!


    The 1855 resolve is fraudulent, and NO governor can execute a fraudulent law (see Article 5, Section 12 of the “original” constitution of the State of Maine- the governor executes the laws of the state).

    He is NOT allowed to execute a fraudulent, supposed, pretend law which is NOT law to start with.

    Law is law which follows the constitution and does NOT incorporate “appearing looking” so-called laws. Just because it “appears” to be law does NOT make it law.

    This is explained in my book “Where Did The Original Constitutional State Go?” by Lise Dupont.

    The legislature has NEVER been given the delegation of authority to “steal” from another department of government which it did in the fraudulent 1855 resolve and more, and has NO authority to “fool” the people (electors) into voting on a fraudulent “proposed” amendment.

    Additionally, the people (electors in this case) have NEVER been given authority to “expand” their own powers by participating in voting for a fraudulent, proposed amendment.

    What I have seen in my research and investigation is that the legislature has become a “criminal” enterprise over time with the electors participating in the fraud as well as the governor and the council.

    Why didn’t Governor Anson P. Morrill “shout” from the rooftops in 1855 to let the people know as well as the legislature that this is “stealing” from his department and that it cannot be done lawfully?

    Why didn’t he?

    He also had a “remedy” in Article 6, Section 3 whereby he could ask a
    “question of law” to the justices of the “original” Supreme Judicial Court of the State of Maine (NOT Maine Supreme Judicial Court – an administrative state-wide court only acting for the state).

    Did he ask a “question of law” regarding the “stealing” from his department?

    No, he did not.

    Did the Council ask a “question of law” of the said justices?


    Did any of the “other” legislators ask a “question of law” to the said

    Again, no!

    So there you have it!

    Everyone is participating in fraud, and NO ONE says anything. No one does anything about it but LePage can if he ONLY knew about this
    fraudulent 1855 resolve.

    Everyone is “cooperating” with each other where they should be acting as “rivals” when someone attempts to do something unlawful.

    The 1855 fraudulent resolve is null and void on its face anyways but LePage can issue a “formal” declaration to the people and
    “automatically” bring back the attorney general constitutional office into the Executive department.

    The remedy is SO SIMPLE but most people cannot see this.

    The reason we are in this mess today is because everyone
    “cooperated” with each other regarding the lawlessness that took place.

    All for now.

    I welcome comments.

    Thank you!

    • This is easy enough to understand…the hard part is getting to the governor.

  4. Hi!

    Yes, easy enough to understand.

    Does the governor know about the fraudulent 1855 resolve?

    I don’t think so.

    Thank you!
