    Seriously off the rails...

    Rachel Maddow (MSNBC) has the best coverage of LePage's latest, craziest, ugliest, and most incredible rant. Find more Maddow coverage here....

    The Press Herald has the uncensored voicemail and more here...

    Democratic leadership has called for LePage's resignation. The Herald's Eric Russell has the press conference video with Rep. Gattine and Asst. House Majority Leader Sara Gideon, where she said:

    " ...When a leader makes a [threatening] statment like this, it incites violence and invites behavior from other people...

    ...a political intervention means...our sensible and thoughtful Republican friends come together with us to do one of two things: to either make sure that Governor LePage gets the help that he needs, because this kind of behavior is not normal behavior, it is not just not what we expect of our chief executive, our governor, it's also not what we expect of any human being who is functioning normally in society. So we expect them to come together with us to either get him the help that he needs or to remove him from office..." [emphasis ours]

  • Clean Elections Funding

    is a key element to our Legislative candidates' success. As individuals we provide the $5 contributions to the Maine Clean Elections fund that qualify each of them for public funding of their campaigns.

    Candidates qualify for additional funds when new supporters in their districts make contributions. For details see our Clean Elections page.

    You may refer friends and neighbors to our simple referral page:

    knoxmainedems.org/mec.php

    which is easy to write on paper, type into a browser, and links directly to the Maine Ethics Commission contribute page.

    Note that all our Democratic candidates for Legislature have qualified for Maine Clean Elections Act funding. See our Candidates page.
