Maine Gov. Paul LePage Apologizes For ‘White Girl’ Remark

Maine’s tough-talking governor admitted he made a “mistake” and apologized Friday for making what has been widely condemned as a racist remark at a town hall meeting.

But Gov. Paul LePage insisted he was being unfairly pilloried for “one slip-up.”

“I was going impromptu and my brain didn’t catch up to my mouth,” LePage said. “Instead of Maine women I said white women. … If you go to Maine, you can see it’s 95 percent white.”

    Why is it when someone accidentally says the truth, they spend so much time apologizing for it.

      Because they are cowards, and refuse to stand by their words.

    Oh, for goodness sakes! I saw his apology. I didn’t even pick up that he said white women. Who even cares, except those thin skinned PC jerks. Oopps, I shouldn’t have said that, I might be hurting someone’s feelings. Ha, ha, ha, ha…good!
