Libby the Liar: Mitchell Laughed at ‘Terrorist’ Joke Against President Bush

Posted on | October 13, 2010 | 2 Comments

The campaign of Libby Mitchell, the Democratic candidate for governor of Maine, is in meltdown mode this week, after the state senator from Augusta was caught in a lie. During a televised debate Sunday, Mitchell criticized her Republican opponent Paul LePage for saying he’d tell Obama to “go to hell” if the administration’s policies hurt Maine’s fishing industry. The blog As Maine Goes reports:

LePage rebutted Mitchell saying, respect cuts both ways, and he used a photo he had seen of the Sen. President laughing at a picture of Pres. George W. Bush portrayed as a terrorist. Mitchell said she had no idea what LePage was talking about.

The blogger then published the photo:

Ha. Ha. Ha. Very funny, Libby Mitchell. You’re at 32% in a three-way race, and my bet is that you’ll finish third.
