AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - The Democratic leader of the Maine House says that lawmakers are reviewing all options for possible actions against Republican Gov. Paul LePage for his recent behavior.

Democratic House Speaker Mark Eves accused LePage this week of blackmailing a school by threatening to withhold funds to get him fired from a job there. Eves has said he’s considering suing LePage.

That has prompted a few liberal lawmakers to call for a formal investigation that could potentially lead to impeachment.

The Portland Press Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1LL6glr ) that House Democratic Leader Jeff McCabe said Friday that “nothing is off the table” in terms of potential actions against LePage. But he and Assistant Democratic Leader Sara Gideon are also urging members of their caucus to show restraint while they investigate the facts.
