While a congressman, Gov. John Baldacci lived for four years in a church in Wash
While a congressman, Gov. John Baldacci lived for four years in a church in Washington, D.C., known as the C Street Center. The center is legally and actively a church, and the six to eight congressmen and U.S. senators who live on the top floor are brothers in "the Family" or "the Fellowship," a conservative group dedicated to ending the separation of church and state. National media interest in the right-wing political agenda of the church has raised questions about Baldacci's tenure there. Baldacci dismisses his affiliation with the church, maintaining that it was nothing more than an inexpensive place to stay. Lee Umphrey, spokesman for the governor, said Baldacci never participated in religious events at the church, nor did he attend weekly prayer or Bible-study meetings. With details of the activities of the C Street Center.
