It has come to my attention that rumors have been circulating concerning Paul LePage’s position on gay marriage and civil unions. As the chairman of the Red County Caucus, I was privy to this memo that was sent to us directly from Paul LePage himself:
May 13, 2010- 11:44 am
To Rep. Davis:
On the issue of “traditional marriage,” I pledge to fight with every breath to maintain the current definition of traditional marriage that being between a man and a woman. Further, I would veto any effort that would strengthen the gay marriage agenda, whether it be in the area of civil union, civil marriage, domestic partnerships, etc., etc. In a LePage Administration any effort to change Traditional Marriage between a man and a woman will not go anywhere but the trash can, after I veto it.
