Smells fishy. I suppose it wouldn't shock me per se, but I've noticed a trend in the form of anonymous political sources being full of ****.

The lawmakers, both Republicans, confirmed the comment when asked by a Portland Press Herald reporter but asked that their names be withheld for fear of political retribution.
Two other lawmakers who attended the event – Reps. Alex Willette of Mapleton and Larry Dunphy of Embden – said that if LePage made the comment, they didn't hear it.

Even if true, it isn't like there's any shortage of idiots of both parties saying idiotic things. The Stupid is an equal-opportunity destroyer.

Doesn't surprise me. LePage has a penchant for making provocative statements like that which reflect badly on all Republicans. Honestly, I wouldn't be too disappointed if Cutler or Michaud knocks him off next year.
