Three days after taking over a Maine newspaper chain, former Times
editor and publisher Richard L. Connor doled out a sizable chunk
of company cash to buy a sport-utility vehicle for his son, the chain's
current publisher alleged Wednesday.
The purchase, MaineToday Media publisher Lisa DeSisto said in a
memorandum to staff, was the first in a series of Connor
misappropriations totalling more than $500,000. The memorandum was
published on the Portland Press Herald
