Maine's Racist Governor Loses Grip Once Again
Our Gov. Paul LePage here in Maine has a long history of raging against critics who challenge his racism, frequent gross exaggerations and outright lies.
Just a couple days ago LePage went after the Democrat in the state legislature who chairs the Health & Human Services Committee in the House of Representatives.
The dispute is over whether Blacks and Hispanics from out-of-state are the primary reason drugs are flowing into Maine. LePage claims he has a three-ring binder full of photos of Black & Hispanic faces who have been arrested for these crimes. Law enforcement officials in LePage's home town of Lewiston were quoted on the radio saying that 90% of those arrested for drugs in their city are white.
The FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Service reported that, in 2014, 1,211 people were arrested for selling or making drugs in Maine, and, of those, 170 – or 14.1 percent – were black.
After seeing LePage (who is a big supporter of Trump and whose daughter has been hired to work on the Trump campaign) do this repeatedly over the last six years in office one might wonder when the Democrats who control the state House will vote in favor of impeachment articles that have previously been filed against LeRage.
The man is sick and should not be leading our state government. He belongs in a program for alcoholic abusers.
