The Making of Paul LePage, Part I

The first installment of my two-part, 10,000-word biography of Maine Governor Paul LePage is the cover story of this week's Portland Phoenix, which hit the streets overnight.

Part I of "The Making of Paul LePage" takes us from his sixth-great grandfather, the First Lord of Rimouski, Quebec, to his 1971 college graduation. Part II, out next week, brings us from Canada to inauguration day, one year ago this week.

My thanks to the Fund for Investigative Journalism in Washington, D.C. for their support of this project, which has been several months in the making.

[Update, 1/18/2012: Here's a link to Part II.]
