In response to DEP series, Gov. LePage orders staff, commissioners not to speak to Press Herald

The third and final installment of my investigation of the Maine Department of Environmental Protection appeared in today's paper, and we didn't have to wait long for the governor's reaction to the revelations.

Today Gov. Paul LePage ordered all his staff and commissioners not to speak to the paper, which is Maine's largest, or its sister papers, which together constitute the state's largest chain. Needless to say, this has caused the story to become national news.

The full series -- "Lobbyist in the Henhouse" -- is now available at this special landing page.
