Candidate for
Maine House of Representatives District 57
Michael Hein was a 2012 Republican candidate for District 57 of the Maine House of Representatives.[1]




Hein was summoned on a charge of theft by deception after an investigation by the Maine attorney general's office in May 2012.[2] Hein was accused of using his own money to meet the small donation threshold that would have allowed him to receive approximately $1,400 in Clean Elections for his primary campaign, and after that, another $3,900 for the general election.[2] The criminal charge was punishable by up to 364 days in jail or a $2,000 fine.[2] On June 6, 2012 Hein plead not guilty to the charges.[3] Hein was ultimately found guilty and sentenced to 7 days for encouraging people to falsely claim they had given him small donations.[4]
