Mark S. Finks, a Falmouth Republican conservative, is suing Secretary of State W
Mark S. Finks, a Falmouth Republican conservative, is suing Secretary of State William Diamond in Cumberland County Superior Court in order to remove Susan Collins, the Republican gubernatorial nominee, from the ballot. Finks contends that Collins does not meet the 5-year residency requirement specified in the state constitution, since she moved to Massachusetts in 1992 and worked there until she returned to Maine last September. Collins' campaign manager says that Finks is a "ultra-conservative extremist," who will stop at nothing to prevent Collins from becoming Maine's first woman governor. GOP conservatives are unhappy with some of Collins' liberal positions.
