Gov. LePage Calls Reporter ‘One Bad Lady’
Gov. Paul LePage had some strong words for a local TV news reporter recently, calling her 'One Bad Lady' on camera as he was leaving the Maine State House.
According to WGME, which posted the video on its Facebook page, LePage was responding to WGME reporter Marissa Bodnar, who was attempting to question the governor about a report that he planned to call on Attorney General Janet Mills to resign her position as she runs for governor this fall.
The report was based on a now-deleted video that allegedly showed the governor saying at a private event that he was going to ask Mills to either take a leave of absence or resign because he felt she was not acting as an attorney general. LePage has said he has not asked for Mills' resignation and would not comment on the subject. When pressed by Bodnar on the matter, the governor got testy.
