Over the past two years, U.S. Senator George Mitchell met with Pentagon official
Over the past two years, U.S. Senator George Mitchell met with Pentagon officials more than 15 times to lobby on behalf of having a Department of Defense accounting center located at Loring Air Force Base in Limestone. A spokesman with the Loring Development Authority said that all of Maine's congressional delegation was involved in the lobbying, but Mitchell was particularly active. Rumors have circulated that the decision to locate the center at Loring was designed to help the Senate campaign of Democrat Thomas Andrews, who has been criticized for voting for the measure that authorized the shutdown of Loring.
