Court Sides with Maine Governor on Labor History Mural

A federal appeals court ruled that Maine Gov. Paul LePage was within his rights when he took down a mural depicting labor history in a building that housed the state's Department of Labor. 

The 11-panel, 7-foot mural hung in the waiting room in Maine's Department of Labor. 

The original mural's current location is a mystery, reports Boston.com

Chief Judge Sandra Lynch of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 1st Circuit wrote in her decision:

There are those who disagree with the decision to remove the mural from the (Maine Department of Labor). Governors and administrations are ultimately accountable to the electorate through the political process, which is the mechanism to test disagreements.
