Four crazy things Gov. LePage said this week (including threatening to leave Maine)

Sometimes, especially since the election of President Trump, we forget that it isn’t normal to have a chief executive who lies, contradicts himself and makes strange policy proclamations on a daily basis. On this episode of the Beacon Podcast, Ben, Taryn and Mike examine a week in Maine politics through the lens of LePages actions and antics on health care, the minimum wage, Real ID,¬† taxes and his threats to leave the state.

Also, Ben’s book review recommendations by Rich Yeselson: When Labor Fought for Civil Rights and At Labor’s Crossroads.

And a reminder to join us Wednesday at the State House to stand up for the minimum wage.
