    LePage says he is considering resignation, apologizes

    Gov. Paul LePage raised the possibility Tuesday that he may not finish his second term, amid mounting pressure from Democrats and members of his own party to amend for his recent actions.
    Im looking at all options, the Republican governor said while appearing on WVOM, a Bangor talk radio station. I think some things Ive been asked to do are beyond my ability. Im not going to say that Im not going to finish it. Im not saying that I am going to finish it.


    He later said, If Ive lost my ability to help Maine people, maybe its time to move on.
    LePage also apologized repeatedly to Rep. Drew Gattine and his family for leaving a threatening voicemail last week.

    Took him long enough to apologize...... I would hope he would resign but I doubt he will.

    I would pay to see him head up a corporate sensitivity training seminar.

    You know, this is just too bad. I thought he and his wife were pretty special as unlike other politician wives she isn't too proud to work with the commoners.
    It is quite obvious he has a severe drinking problem and needs to seek help.



    That Ann LePage — the the wife of Maine Republican Gov. Paul LePage — snagged her latest job using her family “connections,” is hardly surprising.

    What is surprising is that those connections didn’t come from her powerful husband, but instead from her daughter, who is in law school.

    Last summer, Lauren LePage made a whopping $28 an hour at McSeagull’s, “a bustling restaurant touting double-wrapped bacon scallops and views of Boothbay Harbor,” according to the Associated Press.

    This year, her 58-year-old mother is following in her footsteps to make some extra dough during the profitable tourist season.

    “Oh honey, it’s all about the money; it’s all about the money,” LePage told CBS affiliate WGME. “I told him (Governor Paul LePage) my money I earn here I’m putting in a kitty. I want to buy a car this summer.”

    What kind of car? Not a Mercedes or a Range Rover — the political elite’s preferred modes of transportation — but a Toyota RAV 4, the kind of modest SUV a person apparently buys when their spouse is the lowest-paid governor in all 50 states, according to the AP.

    When I was a kid I once saw some guy dive off a forty foot tower into a rather small kiddie pool that I thought only had about a foot of water in it. It was totally impressive.

    I would pay to see LePage do that.
