Maine Unites In Bipartisan Head-Shaking Over Paul LePage

If anyone was ever cut out for the classic executive overreach that so often accompanies re-election to a second term, it’s Maine Gov. Paul LePage (R). And, man, is he overreaching, in spades. So much so that even Maine Republicans are beginning to abandon him. The most dramatic split came when the GOP-controlled Senate refused last week to accept LePage’s botched vetoes. Sorry, pal, these are too late! But it’s not just the botched vetoes. As one GOP legislator put it dryly to TPM’s Tierney Sneed, he’s actually brought Democrats and Republicans in the statehouse closer together. Bipartisanship!
