Tipping: LePage Plays Favorites

Posted on August 7, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , , |

Eye opening stuff from Mike this morning. Some snips:

“… after blocking the issuing of voter-approved community development bonds slated to help 11 towns in Maine, Gov. Paul LePage had selectively helped five of those communities receive alternate funding for their planned development projects.

Every one of the five — Norway, Livermore Falls, Dover-Foxcroft, Eastport and Monmouth — is represented by Republicans in both the House and Senate.

None of the four towns with Democratic representatives — Rockland, Skowhegan, Bath and Belfast — received similar assistance.

That’s quite a coincidence.”

Indeed it is.
Mike concludes:

“It doesn’t seem to matter how well-planned your development project is or how many small businesses it will help. If the governor doesn’t like your town or the people in it, he won’t help it succeed.”
