Infantile governor throws election tantrum

“Maine Gov. Paul LePage (R) said he would ‘probably not’ certify the results of Tuesday’s primary election” because he doesn’t like his state’s new “ranked choice” voting system that Republicans unsuccessfully fought against in federal and state courts. Read story here.

“In an interview with WCSH-TV, LePage called the system ‘the most horrific thing in the world’.” It’s not. North Korea’s electoral system is much worse than Maine’s.

It’s weird that a Republican governor said he doesn’t trust his own state’s voting system on the same day that our Republican president said he trusts North Korea’s dictator. What does that tell us about Republicans?
