BREAKING: Not All Republicans Have Ice in Their Veins

I’m guessing you heard about the mural depicting Maine’s labor history that Maine’s Republican Governor, Paul LePage removed from the state’s Department of Labor headquarters last month.

Fast forward to today, and we learn that some of his fellow Republicans are raising money to get it back and to put it back up:

Republicans in northern Maine have raised $2,300 in online contributions so the state can buy a disputed labor mural from the federal government.

The Aroostook County Republican Committee this month launched a website to raise $60,000 so the state can take ownership of the art work.

The U.S. Department of Labor says the state should return federal money used to create the mural because Gov. Paul LePage violated terms of the federal grant used to pay for it when he had it removed from the state Labor Department headquarters.

Yeah, I know, this is probably politically motivated but still, it isn’t often that Republicans break rank with their coldhearted leaders.
