Former GOP gubernatorial candidate William Beardsley is taking some heat, as it is being reported that he continued to allow the late Rev. Robert Carlson access to Husson College activities after Carlson resigned as chaplin of the school abruptly in 2006. It has also been reported that Beardsley was made aware of possible abuses by Carlson at that time. The heavily redacted released police report has caused a former officer to criticize the handling of this case.

Over the weekend, Governor LePage came out in support of his former 2010 primary opponent and current Department of Conservation commissioner. Beardsley will be attending a public forum in Caribou later today, regarding the state’s merging his department with the Department of Agriculture.

The Maine Labor Relations Board yesterday rejected MSEA-SEIU’s complaint against the LePage administration alleging that they illegally hired private contractors to perform state employees’ work after the union’s contract expired last year.
