A progressive group in Maine has enraged supporters and opponents alike after it accused Republican lawmaker Dale Crafts of having “No Spine” and failing to “stand up” to the state’s governor.
Crafts has been bound to a wheelchair for 26 years as the result of a motorcycle accident.
Maine People’s Alliance (MPA) circulated a leaflet designed to look like a medical prescription. On it was Crafts’ picture and his list of “ailments,” which included having “No Heart” and “No Spine.”
The left-wing group was attacking Crafts because he “voted to deny health care to 70,000 Mainers” and “failed to stand up to Gov. LePage’s bullying,” according to the flier.
MPA is upset that LePage and Republicans have continued to block Medicaid expansion in the state.
