Governor Vaseline


News Item:  Gov. Paul LePage on Thursday said a Democratic lawmaker, Sen. Troy Jackson of Aroostook County, “claims to be for the people but he’s the first one to give it to the people without providing Vaseline.”

LePage also said that Jackson has a “black heart” and that he should go back in the woods and cut trees “and let someone with a brain come down here and do some good work.”

Jackson responded by saying that though he’s often at odds with the governor, the chief executive’s bluster doesn’t bother him.
