I was appalled by the June 2 front-page article, “Wardens suspend undercover operations.”

The idea that a state agency, funded by Maine taxpayers, would refuse to investigate multiple allegations against one of its employees seems ludicrous to me.

I do not know whether or not agent William Livezey did what he is accused of doing. However, he is a public servant and should be held accountable for his actions.

In fact, if innocent, he should be eager to have an investigation done to clear his name. Successful government is based on trust. And if government employees cannot be held responsible, trust is destroyed.
