Will he or won't he resign? That is the question many people are asking about Maine's Gov. Paul LePage.
The Republican governor landed in the headlines after he left a profanity-laced voicemail for Maine state Rep. Drew Gattine.
"I want you to prove that I'm a racist. I've spent my life helping black people and you little son of a *****, socialist, ****sucker," LePage said in the message.
LePage thought Gattine called him a racist, something the state representative denies.
Instead, he scheduled a town hall meeting in that state representative's hometown, a meeting which has since been canceled.
So what now? We're really not sure. On a radio show Tuesday morning, when asked whether he would finish his term, LePage said: "I'm looking at all options. I think some things I've been asked to do are beyond my ability, and I'm not gonna say that I'm not going to finish it. I'm not saying that I am going to finish it."
But a few hours later, the governor took to Twitter to deny resignation rumors, writing, "to paraphrase Mark Twain: 'The reports of my political demise are greatly exaggerated.'"
The governor said he wanted to schedule a meeting with Gattine, and according to the Portland Press Herald, that meeting is set for Wednesday.
