The Tea Partier Maine’s electorate elevated to the governor’s office in of its more dubious judgments has some things to say that are presumably not intended as factual statements:
“Number two, when you talk about workforce development, it really means that the people that — about 47 percent of able-bodied people in the state of Maine don’t work,” LePage said. A woman can then be heard on the recording reacting to that figure, to which LePage reiterated “About 47 percent. It’s really bad.”
I won’t call this a “lie” because I suspect he’s convinced himself that this is actually true.
