AUGUSTA, Maine (IFS) -- The story about this conversation is very old. It is amazing that it is now getting aired because of a tirade by Governor LePage left in a voicemail. It was reported by IFS back in 2012 about the "claimant" of black drug dealers coming to the State of Maine and leaving babies and drugs in the wake. The story was not directly tied to the City of Philadelphia and/or New York.
Should the Governor resigned about this? We writers here at IFS don't believe he should.
Everyone of us have an "off" day where no one dies, but a lot of rhetoric is left on the table. The voicemail was just one step short of a duel in the streets at high noon.
Republican Gov. Paul LePage said Tuesday that he plans to meet with a Democratic lawmaker to try to make amends for leaving an obscene voicemail message and that he isn't ruling out resigning.
When Governor LePage did speak about it on WVOM-FM radio, LePage apologized for the tirade directed at Rep. Drew Gattine and said it was "unacceptable and totally my fault." LePage was going to meet with family and close advisers to decide what to do next. He said he hopes Maine residents will forgive him and say, "You clean up your act and let's move forward.'"
LePage also declined to say whether he will serve out the remainder of his term. "Some things I've been asked to do are beyond my ability," LePage said without elaborating. "I'm not going to say I'm not going to finish it. I'm not going to say I am going to finish it."
