But first, there's beensome interesting news
from Maine, which, by the way,is my favorite state
because it looks like oneof those little booties
that dogs hate wearing,you know?
It's just like... Look at that.Just like, just like,
"Get off. Get off, Maine.Get off, Maine. Get off, Maine."
Now, uh, Maine is dealingwith a major heroin epidemic,
and their governor, Paul LePage,blames it on racial minorities.
But, luckily, he hasthe evidence to back it up.
REPORTER: Claims at a town hall meeting last month were met
with skepticism, but he insisted
he had the news clippings to back them up.
90-plus percentof those pictures in my book--
and it's a...it's a three-ring binder--
are black and Hispanic people.
You keep a binder fullof drug dealers?
That sounds like the angriestscrapbooking project ever.
"Goddamn drug dealerscoming into my state!
"Carol, I need some glitter!
Carol! I'm having so much fun."
But here's the best part,reporters just got their hands
on LePage's binderof drug dealers,
the ones he saysare 90% black and Hispanic.
And, uh, guess what...
REPORTER: According to an AP analysis
of LePage's information,
no more than about one-third of the people arrested
in heroin-related cases were black or Hispanic.
The governor's office is standing by the remarks
but says the governor would like to move on.
Oh, the governorwould like to move on?
The governorwould like to move on?
As the accused, you don't get todecide when you want to move on.
"You stand here chargedwith murder."
"Your Honor,I'm glad I killed him,
but I would like to move on."
"Okay, case dismissed."
It doesn't work like that.
