LePage Promises to Keep Quiet as Maine Republicans Fret

Maine Governor Paul LePage now keeps a roll of duct tape on his desk as a reminder to himself.

“We all have faults -- mine is that I can’t keep my mouth shut,” LePage, 64, said yesterday in his Augusta office. “I promised my staff: Now till Election Day, when I want to say something that is off-color, I’m going to tape my mouth shut.”
