Three years ago George Smith rescued the Sportsman's Alliance of Maine (SAM) from bankruptcy, increased SAM's donations and tripled the organization's 4,500-name membership list. Today, Smith faces charges of financial mismanagement and conflicts of interest in a lawsuit filed by half of the former SAM board. Maine Times investigates the Smith's rise to power, his incredible influence in virtually all current natural resource issues in Maine, and Smith's carelessness in the management of financial matters and shady dealings at SAM. (Feb. 28, 1996)
