It was way back in September 1998, amid some embarrassing financial questions from his own peeps.
When the dust settled, Ole Mikey managed to land a sweet national gig with an organization, the name of which sounds “somewhat familiar”…
See what you think.
Michael Heath Resigns
Michael Heath has quit his post as director of the Maine Christian Civic League amid a flurry of controversy. He made the announcement on September 28.
Heath led the successful (for now) February repeal of the gay rights law passed by the legislature May of 1997 and signed by Governor Angus King.
Within a month after the vote, Heath came under fire from Civic League board members, who accused him of keeping financial records from being made public. Heath denied the charges.
However, we haven’t heard the last of Heath. He’s accepted a position with another right-wing organization, the Family Research Council, a national group based in Washington, D.C. No word on Heath’s replacement.
Family Research Council, Family Research Council… now, WHY does that name sound so damned familiar?
And if memory serves, wasn’t Tony Perkins here in Maine recently?
