Despite Maine Democrats this week making every effort to investigate Governor Paul LePage for “allegations of misfeasance, malfeasance, nonfeasance and other misconduct” with hopes to reprimand or even impeach LePage for his conduct in office, the governor came under fire again yesterday for racially motivated comments during a town hall meeting.
“These are guys with the name D-Money, Smoothie, Shifty – these types of guys – they come from Connecticut and New York, they come up here, they sell their heroin, they go back home,” LePage told a large crowd. “Incidentally, half the time they impregnate a young white girl before they leave, which is a real sad thing because then we have another issue we have to deal with down the road.”
These comments have been quickly rebuked by other politicians, the NAACP, the Clinton campaign and more. Full story at Portland Press Herald.
