Picked by the establishment, no doubt, because she'll be reliable, and won't question the contradictions inherent in the Democrat platform.
Big News: I’m running for Office!
Well, if she's not an adulterer, then she's a step up from what the 'rats have been sending to Augusta.
Anybody know who's running against Herbig yet?
It seems that Ramona just can't get enough of the spotlite from this mess.
She is still trying to defend what's been done as all Herbig's fault.
Check out her post in the comments section;http://bangordailynews.com/2012/07/15/politics/brunswick-democrats-repla...

Meantime, I just caught a brief interview with Harvard Dos Equis.. wait, that was Yale Dog House...? Excuse me, I meant Princeton Dumb Hass - or was it Dartmou... oh, blast it all, I just can't keep it all straight. Anyway, I just saw an interview on WGME with the gal that's being offered up to replace Mumsy's Kid.
She's just as young (25) cute (as long as you don't mind an extra pound or two), ignorant (nuf said), unqualified (25 year old photographer and CONSULTANT. This one frosts my pickle. What, at the age of 25, do you possibly know enough about to charge people for your expertise? But I digress) and vapid as Mumsy's Kid. Looks like a shoo-in. Brunswick, you have my sympathy.
I do not live in Brunswick, but I am certain that she will do a better job representing her constituents than LeRage has done. She will represent those that vote for her, as well as those that vote for someone else. That is somethinght that Rampage has not figured out.
THIS JUST IN !!!!!
New questions arise as to the ownership of Cornell Du Houx' hard drives and videos.A letter to the editor of BDN raising questions about those hard drives and showing a sort of pride in offering personal sacrifice to preview said images to vouch for their appropriatness;http://bangordailynews.com/2012/07/15/opinion/letters/monday-july-16-201...
Hold your horses. Just one minute. Are we sure these computer hard drives and storage units with images of Rep. Herbig in various stages of undress is not the property of the Maine State Taxpayer? They could also contain important documents and-or state secrets. It may behove us to take a long hard look at these images.
That being said, I wish to volunteer for this duty. I’ll be discrete, in my own home, lights dimmed, perhaps some soft music in the background and a glass of wine.
You know, just to be sure. For the sake of the state.
Great letter. Amazing they printed it.
I don't want the spicy pictures, I want the emails.
I would like to see the ordinary pictures of the love-birds together in happier times that supposedly Alex's sister has posted on her facebook page.

What you mean is that, like all Dems, she'll gladly rule over all her subjects taking as much as possible from some so she can distribute it to others to ensure her continued election. I suppose for a Dem that is representing all her constituents.
"It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions . There are men in all ages who mean to govern well ,but they mean to govern.They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters " - Daniel Webster
Thanks for that quote!
IN her announcement the lady says she wants to take back the house...now I'm no genius, but she's replacing a democrat currently in office, thus no net gain IF she wins. But then again, perhaps there is another "House" she is taking back?
is this the same person who works for maines majority?? must be. no wonder she is the candidate.http://mainesmajority.org/press-release-2012-mar-1
We believe that Maine's future depends on building and empowering a permanent progressive majority in order to strengthen the voice of our state's working families. We strive to create a political environment in which progressives define the terms of the public discourse, and in which progressive values form the basis of public policy.
Maine's Majority creates long-term capacity for Maine's progressive movement through an aggressive, multiissue, media-savvy, year-round political campaign. Our primary function is to support individuals and groups that are engaged in frontline fights around causes such as workers' rights, marriage equality, economic opportunity, and environmental protection. We also challenge and correct right-wing misinformation and hold public leaders accountable to the citizens of Maine.
Warning Warning Warning!!!!
Let us not ruin a divine thread by getting into more serious stuff,ok, we know she will have relevant meaningful discussions on War , Racism , Poverty and the Destruction of the Biosphere etc. etc. but that doesn't matter.Does she have a Mumsy? Does the Mumsy approve of her? Will Mumsy introduce her to Alex,the defender of the realm( and Cundys' Hbr.) ? Has Mumsy bought Alex new hard drives,camera cards etc. ? If so can Alex be w/ a person of the soil(she was a farmhand)?
There are too many unanswered questions to get weighed down with politics !!!!
Thank you, Bruce. Thread creep is a terrible thing.
Another 25 year old kid that knows nothing about the real world? You've got to be kidding me.
Another twist in the tale.
BDN has retracted the previously discussed letter to the editor by Sid Duncan of Presque Isle.
The BDN has retracted an inappropriate letter to the editor from Sid Duncan of Presque Isle that discussed pictures of Rep. Erin Herbig."
I'll bet the phonelines were some hot when Ramona called the BDN editor.
I wonder how they're going to get all those newspapers back.
Was it an on-line letter or a printed letter?
They deleted the online version.
Somebody in the editorial dept prolly got a good earfull and demotion for this blunder.
BDN's professionalisim has shrunk to somewhere between The National Enquirer and a Clorox bottle on the bathroom shelf.
If Ms. Houx did contact the BDN about the letter, it probably wasn't a complaint. She's on the attack with regard to Herbig, everywhere she can get the opportunity.
We need to invite her to comment on AMG.
Oh, those meddlesome Moms . .
"A new PAC formed to kneecap Suzan DelBene in the heavily contested 1st Congressional District race appears to be funded entirely by the mother of her opponent and fellow Democrat, Laura Ruderman.
FEC filings today show Margaret Roths-s-s-s-s-child donated . . " (My optimization)
What are you talking about? It was an awesome letter!
Ya. The letter was great.
I was refering to the unprofessional response of someone allowing a clearly tounge in cheek observation of a democrat nightmare being posted in Pravda on the Penobscot.
It was deleted online, but published in print.
How are they going to deal with the print version?
The writer had a good point, those pictures and emails could be the property of the taxpayers.
The BDN also can't remove it from AMG, presumably.
du Houx conitnues the feud, releasing emails and photos that he alleges shows Herbig has misrepresented the facts.
Legislators' falling out revived in emails
Portland Daily Sun
Written by David Carkhuff
Sharing images of personal emails and documents such as an I. Gorman Jewelers description of a $19,300 platinum and diamond engagement ring, Maine Rep. Alexander Cornell du Houx, D-Brunswick, on Monday issued a lengthy response to claims about his very public estrangement from Maine Rep. Erin D. Herbig, D-Belfast.
Portland Daily Sun
Du Houx has released emails and photos that he claims shows Herbig lied on her PFA request. You can see them on the flickr page, below.
Flickr Photo Page showing Emails and Photos of Herbig and du Houx
I could always be wrong, but to me, it seems as if the du Houx clan is in "If I go Down, You Go Down" mode. The ugliness of this situation just doesn't quit.
Wow, wow, and wow. Unbelievable. The Daily Sun article really sounds bizarre. du Houx sounds like someone who is badly obsessed.
Except for the fact that she hadn't returned the engagement ring. If all she wanted was him out of her life, why hasn't she done that? That is strange behavior, and exactly the kind of thing that would be designed to create a strong emotional reaction in someone. She seems like a master manipulator - her husband, du Houx, and now the voters from Belfast.
Don't try to simpify this relationship too much. Based on what we've seen so far, I'd be surprised if there wasn't a fair amount of emotional manipulating and neediness on Herbig's part as well.
She also seems like she has a bit of the "girlfriend from hell" in her, as well.
Tom - you will get no disagreement from me on that score. As I've said on AMG and other sites, I hold them equally responsible for this mess. That is why I believe Herbig should also withdraw from her re-election race. To me, it's been clear for some time that neither of them has fairly served their constituents. If they want to have messy relationships with married people, they're welcome to stay home and do so, sans public paycheck and benefits.
The pictures are revealing - the June 21 picture pretty much proves that Herbig was cheating on her husband before he filed for divorce.
This woman is bad news.
I'd like more information about the supposed affair she would be having with her former lawyer, is there anything to that?
"He needs to bring a lawsuit if he feels she has his belongings," Maclean responded,
Typical mouthpiece response. If she broke the engagement, then she should return the ring. If the lawyer is demanding more fees and more combative legal action to resolve that stright-forward matter, then it speaks not only to his client's ethics, but to his own as well.
