The 2017 posting for a deputy medical examiner touted Maine's benefits like a "really short season for decomposing bodies" and the fact that others are "lost at sea."
The Bangor Daily News reports that state Rep. Jeff Evangelos, of Friendship, complained about the job posting to Attorney General Aaron Frey. Evangelos said it was "beyond sick."
Evangelos previously asked Frey's office to look into the credibility of Dr. Mark Flomenbaum, the chief medical examiner. The attorney general's office, which oversees office of chief medical examiner, didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
