"I would like to talk to you about your comments about my being a racist, you ----sucker. I want to talk to you. I want you to prove that I'm a racist," Gov. Paul LePage said in a voicemail to a Maine state representative.
It's not something you'd expect to hear from a governor, but that's just part of a profanity-laced voicemail Maine Gov. Paul LePage left for state Rep. Drew Gattine on Thursday.
Though Gattine denies he called LePage a racist, LePage might be used to being called one. He previously drew national attention for this comment he made in January.
