Gerald Weinand at DirigoBlue has posted a really damning document from a top aide to Maine’s new teabagger Governor, Paul LePage. Sure sounds like the Governor’s team is planning to use state workers — and the staff of Olympia Snowe — to build his political profile and work to elect Republicans. Hmm. Problem is, that’s illegal.
Teabaggers, like LePage, are always trashing government. But, it sounds like LePage’s aide, Dan DeMerritt, actually thinks government employees exist for their political benefit. How Tammany Hall of him. Might have worked in 1911, but it’s not true in 2011:
I’d like to connect the week before Christmas with you and key staff. If you are not in town, we can hopefully get some of your staffs putting together some of the resources / information we are going to need to get rolling. Once we take office, Paul will put 11,000 bureaucrats to work getting Republicans re-elected.
These people are dirty. And, what a bunch of hypocrites.
