Governor Blames Heroin Epidemic On Men Named D-Money
( 4UMF NEWS ) Governor Blames Heroin Epidemic On Men Named D-Money:
The governor of Maine is blaming D-Money, Smoothy and Shifty for his state’s drug problems, but swears it's not about race.
During a town hall meeting in Bridgton, Gov. Paul LePage was asked how he planned on dealing with Maine’s heroin epidemic.
Without offering a solution in the clip, he blamed his state’s substance abuse issue on out-of-state drug dealers, who weren’t only bringing heroin into Maine, but also leaving single white mothers behind.
“These are guys with the name D-Money, Smoothy, Shifty, these type of guys, they come from Connecticut, New York, they come up here, they sell their heroin, then they go back home,” he said at the meeting on Wednesday night. “Incidentally, half the time, they impregnate a young white girl before they leave, which is real sad because now we have another issue that we gotta deal with down the road.”
While Page didn’t clarify what he meant by “these types of people,” he claims it was not about race, his spokesman said.
“Race is irrelevant. What is relevant is the cost to state taxpayers for welfare and the emotional costs for these kids who are born as a result of involvement with drug traffickers,” his communications director Peter Steele said.
It is unclear why LePage specified that the pregnant women were “white” if he claimed race wasn’t relevant.
That same night, the Maine DEA arrested three people for trafficking heroin. Their names were not what LePage recommended. The alleged traffickers were named James, Jody and Donna, and were all white.
This isn’t the first time the Maine governor landed himself in hot water over race.
In August 2013, he told a group of Republicans at a fund-raiser “Obama hates white people,” the Portland Press Herald reported.
In 2011, he told the NAACP to “kiss my butt” over a Martin Luther King Day celebration.
He’s defended his remarks in the past by using his adopted black son.
