"Whoops: The governor of Maine's decision to remove a pro-labor mural from the state's Department of Labor may cost taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars, all because he wanted to 'send a message.' Apparently unknown to Maine's recently elected Republican governor, the mural targeted by his ire was initially paid for by a federal grant -- the terms of which he violated by having it removed. And now, according to the Associated Press, the U.S. Department of Labor has officially demanded reimbursement." (04/04/11)
