AUGUSTA, Maine (CN) – Maine Gov. Paul LePage sued the state attorney general on Monday, claiming her refusal to represent him in federal cases is an abuse of power costing taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars in outside legal fees.
Since taking office in 2013, Attorney General Janet Mills has declined to represent the Republican governor on several high-profile cases, including his appeal when the federal government denied LePage’s request to eliminate Medicaid coverage for thousands of low-income young adults in the state.
