Mark W. Eves is an American politician and family therapist from Maine.[1] In 2008, he was elected to the Maine House of Representatives from District 146, North Berwick. He was re-elected in 2010 and 2012 before being chosen by his Democrat colleagues as the Speaker of the Maine House of Representatives for the 126th Maine Legislature (2012-2014). From 2010-2012, Eves was the ranking minority member of the Health and Human Services committee.[1]

On June 30, 2014, the Talking Points Memo website claimed that some Maine adherents to the sovereign citizen movement have called for Eves and fellow Democrat Senate President Justin Alfond to be tried, convicted, and executed for treason during meetings with Governor Paul LePage in 2013. LePage has denied that such discussions took place, even after learning audio recordings exist of two men claiming such a discussion took place. [2]
