After declining several invitations to attend Martin Luther King Day ceremonies, Maine’s Tea Party governor, Paul LePage, took time today to attend an anti-abortion rally in Augusta.

According to LePage’s spokesman, the official reason the governor turned down invitations from the NAACP is that he was “too busy” and had other obligations. When the NAACP voiced its concern, the newly elected governor told a reporter that they could “kiss my butt.”

In addition to this latest controversy, LePage is also famously known in Maine for telling President Obama to “go to hell,” and for appointing his daughter to a paid state job, an illegal act of nepotism in many other states.
