Maine's LePage certifies Democrat win but writes "stolen election" on the document




https://www.cnn.com/2018/12/28/politics/maine-governor-certifies-congressional-election/index.html

Gov. Paul LePage certified the election results for Maine's 2nd Congressional District after a recount and legal battle dragged out the final result in the race for almost two months, cementing a Democratic victory.

But, LePage -- a Republican firebrand -- made one last jab at the drawn-out process when certifying the election, writing the words "stolen election" next to his signature.

November's congressional election in Maine marked the first time in US history the ranked-choice voting system determined the outcome of a congressional race. The new state law mandates ranked-choice tabulation be applied in any federal race in which no candidate receives a majority of the vote.

Democratic Rep-elect Jared Golden was projected by CNN as the winner of the election in Maine's second district with 50.6% of the vote, and his opponent, Rep. Bruce Poliquin, received 49.4% of the vote.

4. Just like a Republican-- rude, crude, juvenile, anti-social, miserable feces-flingers.

How do these marginal freaks even function? Imagine writing something so petty and vituperative on a company document in a legitimate place of business.
You’d be hauled into Human Resources and told to clear out your desk.

Republicans bring only misery, darkness and death. They need to be GONE.

5. It is way past time for that guy to GTFO. That is all.

 

OK, not quite all. Given that LePage won twice(!)--I believe--with a plurality I can see why he prefers to think Ranked Choice Voting is SO unfair.

10. Snowflake Republican tears. The new Governor should find a way to charge him with vandalism.

Republicans would.

11. a vandalism complaint should be made and he should be forced to sign a new one

March right into the governor's office and get right in his face over it.

12. If the roles were reversed

The GOP would be in court demanding a judge force the governor to sign a clean certificate.

13. Wow, I'd think that warrants a censure or something.

 

Seems to be a dereliction of duty.
