Editorial: SAM slamming citizen referenda
The Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine (SAM) is advocating to make it harder for volunteer-driven campaigns to gather the signatures needed to initiate Maine’s direct initiative process. SAM wants to preempt citizen initiated referenda to ban bear baiting, hounding and trapping.

Maine Secretary of State Matt Dunlap included the provision in a bill that makes housekeeping changes to state election laws. Dunlap previously served on the SAM board of directors and as interim executive director of the organization.

Does that sound like a conflict of interest?
