Maine Governor Paul LePage’s decision to remove a labor mural from the state’s Department of Labor was met with an avalanche of messages critical of the Republican leader’s need to appear more pro-business. According to AP’s analysis, 92 percent of the individual letters opposed the governor’s action; the figure becomes even more lopsided when the faxes from the advocacy group Maine’s Majority are factored in. Surprisingly, LePage still thinks he did the right thing.

The Huffington Post has the whole story, including snippets from letters he received.
