    I will bet you the attorney’s will get most of the money before this is over with. We can call it a dash for the cash……………..

    Not sure what all the fuss is about?
    It’s only $51,000.

      Exactly!
      Barely enough for a liberal do-gooder to spend on some poor out of work dope pusher.

        Or another conservatard thief giving it to Haliburton in the name of national security. At least the druggies didn’t crash the economy. Conservative thieves did. Haliburton walked with over $800,000,000,000 of our money and you worry about a handful of druggies. Another typically blind conservative with messed up priorities.

          Since when is Haliburten in the solar business? Isn’t that the latest boondoggle for the Marxists?

        • When you start your post by calling a large group of people a name ; you lose a lot of respect in my book. Name calling is really not necessary outside of grade school… and not even necessary there, but more understandable as children are still trying to deal with how to express themselves appropriately.

            I agree 100% with you. Please read the post I was responding to. Yowsa is always name calling – look at most of his previous posts – so I gave him back some of his ignorance. He comes on like LePage and then wonders why he gets it back.

    I once asked for a loan at a bank (could be the bank named or might not be) They said that I should open an account with them. I had 2 accounts with them for 13 years and they were very active. Yet they opened an additional account for me without my permission. I explained to them I had been with them for years and their glassed over eyes just stared at me and told me they opened an account and I should come over to their Bank close my accounts at my other bank and we would talk.. I left the office and the Bank for good. LOL!!!

        It’s because they are already formulating the plan for how you will be refused because you are in competition with their “interests.”

      You probably are confusing personal accounts with business accounts. If you asked for loan funds to be advanced periodically, they would have to be advanced to the account named as the borrower. Advancing funds to accounts are other banks isnt wise. The bank was doing their job.

      EMDC had to move money form a bank account it was monitoring for a inactive group to kep the bank from sending it to the State. Now the group has reformed and wants the money back, and EMDC agrees, Why the sensationalism of saying they will sue when the EMDC says it will return the money, I don’t know. Power tripping? They sure did not seem to care much for thirteen years.

        You can decide to whom that applies here. For my part, I nominate the BDN…

        Of course, the nauseating use of alphabet soup doesn’t help readers keep track of the parties. And while the “Trash talk” header is “cute,” it would be more appropriate for a tabloid.

    How mature. Oh, that’s right, we are in Maine. We don’t discuss or actually practice personal responsibility, we just threaten and bully. Yuck.

    EMDC had the fiduciary responsibility to manage the account over a number of years. Once the account became inactive, the responsible action would have been to contact the manager of the account. EMDC knew the manager of account since it was a long standing account within their organization. Thus there are questions surrounding why the money was not returned earlier when the complaint was made this spring. It seems that EMDC only agreed to return the money when court action was raised. So there are a lot of questions still to be answered.
