Rachel Maddow mocks Gov. LePage’s offer to resign

Last night on MSNBC, Rachel Maddow had some fun with Governor Paul LePage’s statement, made to radio station WGAN, that he’ll resign if enough Maine people want him to.

Maddow highlighted the Beacon post on LePage’s angry and grammatically-challenged handwritten note to Louise Sullivan, a retired librarian from Cape Elizabeth who had previously asked him to resign, and showed a reel of some of LePage’s other offensive public statements.

Maddow also discussed the ongoing investigation into LePage’s alleged abuses of power and noted the growing number of Mainers who are now sending their own missives to the governor, requesting his resignation.
