The Coastal Packet: Before Trump hit the trail there was Paul LePage

Before Trump hit the trail there was Paul LePage

In this video Samantha Bee gives some unfair impressions of Maine but offers a fine collection of some of the worst things its governor Paul LePage has said. At the end she gives the stats in LePage's elections but fails to note that the guy who really elected LePage was a self important Washington lawyer from Maine, Eliot Cutler. LePage would not have won either election were it not for Cutler's independent candidacy. The Cutler disaster is one of the reasons we're supporting Clinton for president rather than Jill Stein. We don't need a national Paul LePage.
