Bangor police arrested five people on criminal trespass charges Monday night after they refused to leave Sen. Susan Collins office in the federal building.
Sgt. Myron Warner said the individuals who occupied her office were given fair warning before they were taken into custody without incident. Criminal trespass is a Class E misdemeanor.(snip)
Bangor police responded to the sit-in around 6 p.m. after receiving a complaint from the Department of Homeland Security. Collins office is located inside the Margaret Chase Smith Federal Building at 202 Harlow St. The senator was not present.
The individuals went into Collins office late Monday afternoon to protest her support of the Republican tax cut plan in the Senate. They want Collins to reverse her vote.
I always welcome hearing the views of my constituents, Collins, R-Maine, said in a statement. This is an opportunity for me to let them know that a single mom with one child earning $35,000 would receive $1,100 back from the government, rather than owing income tax.
Collins said the Senate bill means a family with an income of $24,000 would no longer pay income tax. She also said she negotiated a provision that will benefit seniors with high medical expenses by allowing them to deduct medical expenses that exceed 7.5 percent of their income.
A big part of this anger is the feeling that this plan will lock in inequalities for generations to come, said Matt Schlobohm, executive director of the Maine AFL-CIO. Its an absolutely terrible bill.

They eat their own.
Tax reform is on track and Democrats want to derail it. Don’t believe their myths and our Never Trumpsters about the Senates bill
Boycott gay Frisco! Cancel any vacation or business trips to this rotten liberal city, where illegals kill/attack/rob innocent Americans and walk away! MAGA!!!
Guy 1: Bangor?
Guy 2: No, we’re just friends.
And this merits a full-blown news story?
Collins changes vote ?
Do liberals have any other playbook?
“Do liberals have any other playbook?”
No, they do not.
Among other things, I’ve heard it called an “atrocity”.
I think Pelosi called it “Armageddon”.
Anything and any time, any union is against anything Congressional, then i know it is what is good for the country.
Who pays for that office?
Nah, we just kissed.
Guy 1: I just got back from Africa, playing cards with the natives.
Guy 2: Zulus?
Guy 1: No, I usually won.
The taxpayers pay for that office.....it (supposedly) serves constituents. It’s in a large federal building in Bangor, the hub of northern Maine (I’ve been in that building).
Collins has at least one other office in Maine, in Portland.
Her virtue signalling was supposed to make the crocodile eat her last.
Never even spoke to her.
The old guy pictured was in it for the young stuff.
