Maine governor taken to task after mural removed

The status of a labor-themed mural that was removed from Maine Labor Department headquarters because it wasn't in line with Gov. Paul LePage's pro-business agenda remains in limbo.

The board of directors of the Museum L-A in Lewiston decided Tuesday it needs more answers from state officials before deciding whether to exhibit the 36-foot, 11-panel mural. A Portland city councilor who had offered City Hall as a possible temporary site now says it doesn't belong there.

LePage says the mural, which depicts mill workers, labor strikes and child laborers among its scenes, is biased in favor of organized labor.

The president of Mount Holyoke (HOH'-lee-ohk) College in Massachusetts sent a scathing letter to LePage for removing the work, which includes an image of 1902 graduate and former U.S. Labor Secretary Frances Perkins.
