Maine Democrats made some national news with Rep. Dillon Bates

Did you see the news about our Maine Democrats?

“Maine's Democratic House speaker is calling on a lawmaker to resign following publication of a weekly newspaper article that questioned his relationships with teenage girls, including some who attended the now-closed Maine Girls' Academy.

Speaker Sara Gideon said in a statement Friday she values the voices of the young women who came forward about Westbrook Democratic Rep. Dillon Bates. The Bollard reported on the alleged relationships Friday, quoting one woman who wasn't named.”

BTW, Rep. Bates just happens to be a member of Maine’s Joint Standing Committee on Labor, Commerce, Research and Economic Development as posted at https://legislature.maine.gov/house/jt_com/lce.htm

---------

So the BIG question is, will he resign?

What do his buddies in the public-sector labor unions/PACs like Maine SEIU and Maine AFSCME think about this recent development?

What do his buddies in the public-sector labor unions/PACs like Maine SEIU and Maine AFSCME think about this recent development?

I can sum it up in a very small amount of words as to their feelings: "Too bad he got caught this close to the midterms".

In light of the current allegations against Democrat State Representative Dillon Bates, isn't this photo from his current Facebook site just a tad bit creepy?

It sounds like there is indeed some evidence, but it might be somewhat tough to make a strong case without a witness that's willing to testify. With a little luck, I hope the young woman interviewed in The Bollard article will realize how important it is for her to go public with the truth.

It's also easy to predict who

It's also easy to predict who would prefer to sit on the couch and accept the status quo approach, even if that means young girls could keep getting harmed by an alleged predator.

There's a relevant old saying: "Nothing changes if nothing changes."

Even though lots of progressives hate change, especially when it jeopardizes their socialist agenda, it's time we take more actions on important issues like this one. IMO, our younger generation deserves our support on this kind of garbage.

Republican lawmaker calls for committee probe into allegations against Dillon Bates

“These are very serious allegations against Rep. Bates, and the House of Representatives has a responsibility to hear this matter,” said Rep. Paula Sutton, of Warren. “We must be very mindful that due process is a critical component to the proper functioning of the Maine Legislature and Rep. Bates deserves a fair and proper hearing in light of the speaker’s demand that he resign.”

Wow… even the waaaaaaaaaay

Wow… even the waaaaaaaaaay Far-Lefties at PPH think Rep. Bates should resign:

Our View: Rep. Dillon Bates should resign to answer abuse reports

“A cloud of suspicion has hovered over the two-term member of the Maine House since a story in the alternative monthly magazine “The Bollard” reported last week that he had at least three inappropriate sexual relationships with teenagers. The story alleges that Bates met them when he was a drama teacher at Maine Girls’ Academy in Portland, education director at the Schoolhouse Arts Center in Standish and cross-country coach at Massabesic High School. Through his lawyer, Bates says that the allegations are “completely baseless” but he has nevertheless resigned from those positions.

The one job he is stubbornly holding onto, though, is his seat in the Maine House. It is past time for Bates to relinquish that as well. Bates should resign now.”

IF Rep. Bates does get charged and convicted of the crimes alleged against him, can you imagine how much fun his fellow prisoners will have with him... it would most likely be a living hell for him in jail.
