LePage must GO. Period! Here is what you can do right now. (Spread the word.) [View all]

ANYONE else would be FIRED. LePage is mentally unfit to govern, and he must go and go NOW.

Here is a petition you can sign online: http://mefga.org/

(Also, there is a rally at Capitol Park in Augusta tomorrow at 6:30pm.)

The Governor's recent actions are simply inexcusable. Half-baked apologies and
lame excuses can no longer suffice.
Anyone else in any position would be removed from his/her job. In the very
latest outrage, LePage is saying he will hold one of his town meetings in
Westbrook on Wednesday, the very city in which Rep. Gattine, whom LePage
threatened and used such vile language with, lives and serves. The governor is
obviously completely mentally unfit to serve as governor.

Pressure is mounting around the Maine GOP to act and act very seriously. If
they agree to a call of a special session and merely censure LePage, they know
they will take a serious beating at the polls in November and in two years
because he will still be there and voters will take it out on their party.
Democratic leaders have told their Republican colleagues that they must pressure
LePage to resign and seek professional help for his psychological problems.
Remember, ANYONE else would be fired
for such outrageous behavior. Just imagine a School Superintendent, or a fire
chief, or a person working in the private sector acting like that? They'd be
gone in a New York minute.

As Democrats our position must be firm and decisive. We must follow through on
what our leadership has stated: that Lepage is simply unfit to serve as
Governor. If he won't leave voluntarily, he must be forced out. Enough is
enough. Remember, again, Republicans are in a SERIOUS bind. If LePage remains
in office, they will suffer tremendously at the polls in November and in two
years as well, and they know it. Democratic leadership is giving them some time
to act, but they won't wait indefinitely.

Also, it is important to contact your House Reps and State Senators as well as
both Democratic and Republican leadership.
