Dunlap sues for information from election commission

AUGUSTA - Secretary of State Matt Dunlap has filed a lawsuit seeking information on correspondence concerning the Presidents Advisory Commission on Election Integrity.

A member of the commission himself, Dunlap claims it has violated the Federal Advisory Committee Act by excluding Dunlap and others from the commission's work.


Dunlap said he has heard little from the commission since September even though he stated "Clearly, there is information about the commission being created and discussed."


He stated he hopes the lawsuit will bring the commission into compliance and will allow participating members to fulfill their roles and provide a meaningful report to the President.


The commission was created in May to review claims of voter fraud, improper registration, and voter suppression.

Craig Colson became news director and anchor at WVII ABC 7 and WFVX Fox Bangor in December of 2012. He began his career in broadcasting in 1985 while working as a news photographer at another Bangor television station. Craig worked his way up through the ranks and became the main anchor for the nightly newscasts before leaving in 2009. At that point, he became news director for four local radio stations and delivered the morning news before taking on his current position.

Craig grew up in a "news family" and followed in the footsteps of his father who was also a news director and anchor. His brother is also a news photographer at a Boston television station.

Craig's career has brought him all over-reporting from everywhere from Washington D.C. to Red Square in Moscow, Russia. When he isn't reporting the news, Craig can be found taking on new adventures with his two daughters or exploring the coast of Maine in his kayak. His other passion is making furniture in his shop or just about anything involving the outdoors.
