Remember Erick Bennett? He ran (unsuccessfully) for mayor of Portland, ME. Undaunted by that defeat, he's mounting a primary challenge against Susan Collins for US Senate. Also....he ain't right.
From the Bangor Daily News:
All righty then. The guy was convicted and jailed for assaulting his wife, and is now running on a "pro-family" platform. Bennett recently referred to US Rep. Mike Michaud of Maine as "a closet homo." Ya gotta hand it to him. This definitely isn't the same old same old.
He's also boasting of his role as a LePage staffer - a role that he never had. Most people would fight to distance themselves from any connection to LePage, but Bennett is LYING to establish one. That's REALLY sick.
The Maine GOP is trying hard to distance themselves from this guy. What is truly frightening is that if he crossed over the border, Bennett would not be thought of as unbalanced. He'd be embraced as a hero by the NH GOP.
