Maine governor cancels meeting with Democrats over cameraman

PORTLAND, Maine — Governor Paul LePage canceled a meeting with incoming Democratic legislative leaders Tuesday after asking the state Democratic Party to call off a cameraman who has been recording him at his public events.

The Republican governor said he will not meet with Democratic legislative leaders until the cameraman is removed. LePage said that the so-called tracker has followed him for months, but that he has not made an issue of it and it did not bother him until Veterans Day, when he said a private conversation with an elderly veteran in poor health was taped.
