July 10, 2015 - The miracle of Gov. LePage's incompetence

On this week’s episode of the Beacon Podcast, Ben Chin and Mike Tipping discuss Maine Governor Paul LePage’s colossal Constitutional mistake and how it has allowed General Assistance eligibility for asylum seekers to be enshrined in law, helping a thousand Maine families avoid homelessness.

They also discuss the responses to LePage’s veto failure by the media, legislators, his conservative allies and municipal leaders, including Lewiston Mayor Bob Macdonald.
