Position of governor disgraced once again

Letter to the editor

Gov. Paul LePage has once again disgraced the distinguished position of governor in his recent vulgar comments to Sen. Troy Jackson, of Allagash.

One has to wonder how many more atrocities LePage is capable of. While he apologized to loggers, I do not believe he apologized to Jackson.

Most of us would be terminated quickly from our employment if we made similar comments publicly about an individual.

Why should someone who is supposed to be leading our state be able to repeatedly insult people and still retain his position? Rather than apologize, I would respectfully ask LePage to resign from his position as governor and put an end to embarrassing the whole state before the nation.

And now he wants to represent Maine in Congress? God help us!
