Desperate to trash LePage

As a supporter of Paul LePage for Maine's next governor, I was somewhat taken aback but not surprised by the recent TV spots supported by the Democratic Governors Association.

The ads depicting flaming oil rigs and nuclear power plants reminiscent of Three Mile Island indicate the desperation and the sensationalism that exists in today's politics.

Just who is this Democratic Governors Association? It is a group of Democratic governors who, among other things, react to governors' races where  their candidate is in trouble.

It is apparent it will go to any length to divert the attention of the electorate away from the opposition, in this case Paul LePage, who clearly has them running scared, and justifiably so.

Mitchell is just more of the same.

We must all focus on the task at hand, and that is to get the message out to elect Paul LePage Maine's next governor.

And liberalism is a constant state of adolescence compounded by the abject inability to embrace and, therefore, express rational thought.

Why

Why elect Paul LePage Governor? The author doesn't even try to defend his outrageously false claim that the Democratic Governors Association is desperate. Has he attended teir meetings? Has he sat in on their funding deliberations? Or attending strategy sessions. Or perhaps Ken is a mind-reader.
Seems to me the face of desperation belongs to his candidate as he self-destructs. Let see. Breaks the law by apply for a homestead exemption in both Florida and Maine. Excuse me conspires with his wife to break the law ..... Conspires with his wife to defraud Florida of $64,000 in FSU tuition and costs by having his wife falsely swear under penalty of perjury to being a permanent resident of Florida and never intending to return to Maine. Changes the ownership of his house in Waterville. Why, is he trying to hide his assets? Opposes welfare. Reforming(?) welfare is one of his top prioirties. But he has said that he pays employees of Mardens less than $10/hr so that they will qualify for welfare benefits i.e. so the taxpayers can subsidies their salaries.
What new revelations will happen between now and November to show LePage as someone completely committed to his financial improvement and ready to us taxpayer monies to accomplish his goal?

Lepage is doing just fine trashing himself by wallowing in his wingnut welfare - homestead exemptions, in state tuition in another state, pays no property taxes in Maine, and he pouts like a six year old when caught. How much is it costing honest taxpayers to foot this clown's bill?

Hey, everybody does it...isn't that what the dems like to say? Wasn't Clinton's involvement with Lewinsky "his personal business"?

"Hey", sez the parrot, "that's just like---"you have to pass the bill to find out what's in it". Remember that one, X?

Are you going to also condemn the

Republican Governor's Association for their pro LePage ads? The ads you speak of are not acts of desperation, but merely informing the public the differences between LePage and his opponent, in this case Ms Mitchell. LePage does favor nuclear power and wishes to see the coastal waters polluted with oil derricks. Some voters in the state agree with him, many do not. So it's not defamatory, but informative.
