Racist Paul LePage, Maine Guv, is at it again.

Paul LePage Tells John Lewis He Should 'Thank Lincoln For His Freedom'

Maine Governor Paul LePage weighed in on Donald Trump's attack on Rep. John Lewis by siding with the President-elect and demanded Rep. John Lewis look at history and give a "simple thank you" to the white men that gave him his freedom....

He continued, "I will just say this. John Lewis ought to look at history. It was Abraham Lincoln who freed the slaves, it was Rutherford B. Hayes and Ulysses S. Grant who fought against Jim Crow laws. A simple thank you would suffice.”
This is the same guy who said, “Let me tell you something: Black people come up the highway and they kill Mainers.

Asked why he brought up the race of the suspects in his binder, LePage criticized the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram for not printing all booking mugshots of those charged with trafficking in heroin.

“That’s what gave me the idea of going to the jail and getting the pictures, and then a couple of weeks later you started to print them again,” LePage said. “You know and I know and everybody in the state knows that the overwhelming majority of the people that have been arrested this year, coming out of Connecticut and New York, have been black and Hispanic, it’s not a matter of race,...

“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 said at the Bridgton meeting. “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.”

When asked Thursday what he would say to those who believe he’s a racist, LePage said he is not, and that it angers him that his political rivals and the media assume he is racist.
He agreed with Maine Republican Party Chairman Charlie Webster, that there was evidence of voter fraud because he saw blacks voting.

Gov. Paul LePage called Maine’s voting process into question Tuesday, saying that elections – which twice have put him in the governor’s mansion – aren’t “clean” because voters don’t have to show identification at the polls.

In 2012, then-Maine Republican Party Chairman Charlie Webster alleged voting irregularities in the election that November, claiming without evidence that hundreds of unknown black people showed up in some rural towns to vote on Election Day.

“In some parts of rural Maine, there were dozens, dozens of black people who came in and voted,” Webster said. When questioned about his assertion he refused to provide details, and no proof was ever found that unknown people were voting fraudulently.
LePage is totally oblivious to how racist he sounds.
