16. He's a minority governor...
...got around 39% of the vote. The progressive vote was spit between the Demo and an Indy. Maine has a strong tradition of indy voting. It's been proposed in the state legislature for auto run-offs to occur in the future.

I sent an e-mail to Laura Boyett, commissioner of Maine's Dep't. of Labor, earlier today expressing my dismay and anger at this Orwellian history-erasing. I reminded her that Francis Perkins is buried in the small town of Newcastle, Maine, if she wanted to visit her grave and further desecrate her memory.

Don't the working folk of Maine--and everywhere else--realize that if it wasn't for Sec. Perkins and a hell of a lot of labor agitators that they wouldn't even have overtime pay?
