Paul LePage, Maine's new Tea Party-backed governor, will reportedly not attend an NAACP event to honor Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and if the NAACP doesn't like it, LePage said, they can "kiss my butt."

"They are a special interest. End of story ... and I'm not going to be held hostage by special interests," LePage said, according to local station WCSH. "And if they want, they can look at my family picture. My son happens to be black, so they can do whatever they'd like about it."

LePage has an adopted son from Jamaica, WCSH reports.

The NAACP had invited the governor to visit black inmates at a Maine prison, according to CNN. LePage reportedly contends that the organization was upset he insisted on meeting with white prisoners as well.

However, WCSH reports:

Denise Lord, associate commissioner in the Department of Corrections, tells NEWS CENTER that she is not familiar with this specific invitation, but that she would be surprised if the prison had allowed an event that was only for black inmates.

LePage Spokesman Dan Demeritt told the local outlet that the governor had prior commitments during the proposed time slots.

Why are you waiting for somebody else to stand up.

why dont you stand up for the interest, instend of sitting at you computer.

:cheers:
The very fact that I posted the article and you commented on it... shows that I am "doing something" about it. What has escaped your intellect is the "somebody" I was speaking about... -That "somebody" would be one with the political might and ability due to their position in elected office.
