Governor Baldacci Issues Gag Order
This is an ongoing criminal investigation which must be completed in accordance with established protocols, respect for the dignity of those involved, and requires complete and total integrity. Any official who cannot accomplish this who is involved in the case should immediately resign. All others should shut up until it is finished and adjudicated. The whole issue is stupid, and government officials in any capacity who shoot their mouths off and release information that could be damaging to the case should be fired.Criminal investigation isn't a spectator sport, it is a professional obligation and should be treated as such. That information that must be released for the purpose of warning others who may be in danger, or reassuring those who may feel threatened by events should be determined in advance and released by those in a position to do so.
