Maine Democrat ‘Terrified’ After Seeing Man with a Hand in his Pocket

Probably not what scared the Maine lawmaker in question, but I find this image to be oddly comforting.

Most conservatives have either seen in person, or read from a reliable source, just how easily liberals can be frightened, intimidated, or in this case, downright “terrified” over words and deeds that are in reality, quite harmless.

If you thought that by looking at a statue of Stonewall Jackson, or being told that “hard work” is actually a racist codeword, get ready for this special kind of stupid.

Rep. Victoria Morales, D-South Portland, told the committee on Friday that she was terrified after seeing a man run into her kids’ school with a hand in his pocket shortly after the 2012 shooting that killed 20 children and six staff members in Newtown, Connecticut.

“I just put that out there because I want you to know how fearful parents are, how fearful grandparents are, how fearful our kids are,” she said.

In the meantime, the Maine Examiner delves a bit deeper into Morales’ track record as an elected lawmaker;

A glance at her voting record show she has voted mostly along party lines in this legislative session, including voting in favor of taxpayer funded abortions and to allow abortions to be performed in Maine without a doctor present.

Morales also was one of 50 House Democrats that flip-flopped from supporting to opposing a bill that banned sale of fuel with more than 10% ethanol in Maine, in order to uphold a veto of the bill by Governor Janet Mills.

Rep. Morales serves on the Legislature’s Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee and the Ethics Committee.
