(NEWS CENTER) Gov. Paul LePage has made a lot of headlines this week, from comparing the I.R.S. to the Gestapo, to his Medicaid feud with Rep. Chellie Pingree. NEWS CENTER political analysts Phil Harriman and Ethan Strimling go In The Arena with Pat Callaghan to talk about the political fallout.
They also discuss the creation of a new $200,000 a year job within the University of Maine system for former USM president Selma Botman, and the leak of a secret agreement that prohibits a Maine legislator from running for re-election-- or even entering the city of Belfast for a decade.
