Who knew that the rumor of the audio was true??
[quote]…said he was “about ready to punch” a reporter. LePage, the current front-runner in the 5-person race for governor, made the "punch" remark Tuesday morning just prior to a taping of a segment for the Maine Public Broadcasting Network. During back-and-forth conversation before the official taping began — but while the cameras and microphones were recording — anchor Jennifer Rooks told LePage that two MPBN radio reporters also wanted to speak with him.[/quote]
[quote]LePage now says he never had any intention of punching Higgins…"I'm like a dog. I bark more than I bite and I've never bitten anyone yet." …LePage went on to say that he agrees that a candidate's temperament is important in the race for governor…He spent much of his early life on the streets and says some of his "rough around the edges" manner of speaking and behaving is a remnant of that lifestyle.[/quote]
