Did Maine newspaper completely make up claims about what the Maine Governor said?
According to the Press Herald, the two lawmakers, who spoke to the newspaper on the condition of anonymity, said LePage talked about how Obama could have been the best president ever if he had highlighted his biracial heritage and that “LePage said the president hasn’t done that because he hates white people.”
Approached by local media Tuesday, LePage denied the comments.
“No I never said that and you guys are all about gossip, goodbye,” LePage said, according to WLBZ 2. . . .
Littlefield said he is “not going to feed the beast of this paper owned by Donald Sussman,” referring to the owner of the Portland Press Herald, a Democratic donor and the husband of Democratic Rep. Chellie Pingree, which critics see as a conflict of interest.
Two other lawmakers, state Reps. Alex Willette and Larry Dunphy, who also attended the event told the Press Herald that if LePage made the comment about Obama, they didn’t hear it. . . .
