Senate Democrat Assistant Leader given “Muzzle Award”

Senator Lisa Marrache (D) – Waterville, was awarded a “Muzzle Award” as part of the Portland Phoenix’ 12th annual “Muzzle Awards – A look at the dishonorable enemies of free speech and personal liberty in New England.”

The Senator earned this distinction by trying to ram through legislation to shut down the website MaineOpenGov.org, which lists the salaries of Maine government employees, as well as state spending.

Marrache’s bill was eventually defeated unanimously out of the judiciary committee.
