A Maine Center for Disease Control official said she was assaulted and harassed after refusing to destroy documents requested by a newspaper. Sharon Leahy-Lind, director of the Division of Local Public Health, said problems started after she refused her bosses’ order to destroy scoring results for the 27 Healthy Maine Partnerships at the center of last summer’s controversy over state funding. The Sun Journal, which later requested the documents, said she outlined the allegations in a complaint filed with the Maine Human Rights Commission.
