Maine Republican lashes out at reporters during press conference

This definitely isn't the best way for a gubernatorial candidate to end a press conference.

Maine Republican Paul LePage grew irate Monday after getting pressed by reporters on details about how his wife, Ann, had potentially "violated statutes by claiming property tax exemptions on homes in both Maine and Florida," according to the Bangor Daily News.

LePage is a Tea Party-backed candidate who was the surprise winner of the June gubernatorial primary.

The Republican, who faces state Sen. Libby Mitchell (D) and some independent candidates in November, eventually stormed out of the news conference. "I am running for governor, not my wife," he said.

A cameraman for WMTW-TV captured the entire exchange LePage had with reporters and then followed him on his way out the building. The station's website doesn't allow the video to be embedded, but the Maine Democratic Party uploaded the story to their YouTube site. It's gripping video.
