Governor LePage Switches His TV Message
05/24/2013 3:00 PM ET  

Gov. Paul LePage, who got in a tussle with legislative leaders for having a television running outside his office, is still staying away from his State House office in protest.

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) _ But the TV has a new, less-political message Friday. Ushering in Memorial Day weekend, LePage and first lady Ann LePage are honoring Maine's fallen soldiers.

The governor didn't like being told earlier this month that running the TV violated State House rules of decorum, so he threatened to move his work space to the Blaine House across the street as of July 1. He worked there, in the governor's mansion, Thursday and Friday.

He and Mrs. LePage were in the State House Hall of Flags on Friday to attend a Battlefield Cross remembrance ceremony honoring those who died during overseas.
