From the Augusta Police Department this morning:
Time Warner Cable has announced that as many as 320,000 customers may have had their email addresses and passwords exposed. It has been reported that Time Warner was informed by the FBI about the situation and that the FBI was also contacting other internet service providers that had been affected, so announcements from other email service providers
Governor LePage, in his weekly address, pointed to welfare fraud examples like the use of Maine ebt cards at tobacco and alcohol stores and even at a liquor store in New Hampshire. Fact is, there is fraud going on. The question is, how do we stop it from happening? I think random drug tests, though not nearly the complete answer, would help.
Mainers who use food stamp benefits cards will not have to show photo IDs when they buy groceries. The U.S. Department of Agriculture said “no" a request by Gov. Paul LePage's administration to require photo ID. The Department of Agriculture said that would infringe on card holders' rights and would not fight fraud.
