Paul LePage, Maine’s new Tea Party-backed governor, isn’t going to 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 CNN affiliate 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.
