GOP Spokesman David Sorensen on the Lachowicz investigation issue:

David Sorensen:
" Interviews today so far with Reuters, BBC, ABC, and NECN to spread the word that candidate Lachowicz's comments are outrageous, and that if she were your average gamer, we would not be making an issue. But Lachowicz is not your average gamer. In gaming forums she has made shockingly offensive comments like the one ... saying that our Governor was a drug dealer as a homeless youth. Democrats are trying to spin this like Republicans are going after her for her hobby, but the real issue here is Lachowicz's appalling comments; and for those, she has no defense."

Agreed, 100%.

Bottom line, her statements

Bottom line, her statements indicate a complete lack of decorum, discretion, and maturity. She is not legislative material.

OTOH, she could be a shoo-in for the White House.

You beat me to it, eagle.

She's not legislative material if you are of a rational, sound mind.

OTOH, if you're a moon-bat, progressive carer and feeler, she's a dream candidate.

Can't wait to see the Nemitz column on her.

Nemitz will paint her as the poor, pitiful victim of an evil, rapacious GOP witch hunt.

Kind of like McCormick, Violette, etc.

I'm sure he's already crafting one of his "poison pen" letters, addressed to the Maine GOP.

Never mind that she wrote a despicable speculative statement saying that Governor LePage was "probably" a drug dealer when he was 11 years old and homeless. As someone who supposedly works with disadvantaged and disturbed children, Lachowicz should be ashamed of herself.

Lachowicz' statements on Gov.

Lachowicz' statements on Gov. Paul LePage:

Some of the posts sharply criticize Republican Gov. Paul LePage. One says she doesn't want LePage "anywhere near her" and said she "was in his office once and felt like I had to shower after I left."

Another criticizes him for campaigning for governor "on being a French orphan," referring to his stories of being homeless in his youth in Lewiston.


"Of course, I've never known any 11 year olds that can support themselves except through drug dealing or sex work, and I work with kids," she writes. "Odd that we never heard any of this when he was the mayor of Waterville."

Classy, huh?

Here's the comment I submitted to Lachowicz' blog page. Let's see if it gets through her deletion activities. So far, there are ZERO comments published on her blog that have any negative contents. Zero.

http://www.colleenlachowicz.com/?p=106

Ms. Lachowicz:

What say you about these comments you made, regarding Gov. Paul LePage? Does writing such offensive allegations about Maine's Governor make you fit for public office?

From the Portland Press Herald article.
http://www.pressherald.com/news/Lachowicz.html

Lachowicz' statements on Gov. Paul LePage:

"Some of the posts sharply criticize Republican Gov. Paul LePage. One says she doesn't want LePage "anywhere near her ass" and said she "was in his office once and felt like I had to shower after I left."

"Another criticizes him for campaigning for governor "on being a French orphan," referring to his stories of being homeless in his youth in Lewiston."


"Of course, I've never known any 11 year olds that can support themselves except through drug dealing or sex work, and I work with kids," she writes. "Odd that we never heard any of this when he was the mayor of Waterville."

Care to explain why a social worker would make such despicable, unfounded allegations about the supposed youth of Gov. Paul LePage?

Do you truly think Maine needs a senator with such a poor sense of decorum, who lacks the maturity to conduct herself with grace and intelligence?

Thank you,

>>>>GONE<<<< from her blog page.

If Lachowicz is this much of a coward now, how would she ever deal with life in the Legislature? What's she going to do if she gets elected, and doesn't have anyone there next to her chair, to filter out the unpleasant stuff?

The Maine Senate is not an echo chamber. Ms. Lachowicz had better stay home, where she can play games and avoid the unpleasant truth of political life.

It is truly amazing to see just how "intolerant" the party of "compassion and tolerance" can be when irked.

This lady is a real nut job! I can't imagine her working with kids. Glad my children never had to be around someone like her.

In the [url=http://www.kjonline.com/politics/state/Lachowicz.html]video[/url] she plays the victim while leaving unspecified exactly what she has been called out for. She makes faces and acts bewildered that there is anything she should be accountable for.

Nowhere does she acknowledge, let alone discuss, even in her characteristically inarticulate substitute for sentences, her own statements that reveal her personal irresponsibility at work, her radical political ideology, and her smearing of real people and stating her desire for their death. We are only told that unspecified statements have been taken "out of context".

This edited video of her "response" even omits the questions she was asked except for the innocuously barely audible. It reveals no clue as to what has been discovered about her and what she has been denounced for.

She evasively deflects criticism as if it were only an irrelevant fabrication about a "game" as she makes faces in bewilderment of why anyone would do this. She even wanders off to cite statistics on the "average age" of "gamers". She will talk about anything other than what she is criticized for. If you didn't know in advance what this is about you would have no idea as she seeks sympathy for being criticized for only playing a game.

She claims unspecified criticism is all a baseless "attack" on her as though all she did was merely play a game for recreation for a "few years" long ago, as if nothing else has happened. She claims that she has been "hunted down" for doing what "private citizens do, going to work every day, sometimes making comments on a blog". Do ordinary citizens make the kind of statements she has? You wouldn't know because she won't admit what they were.

She only concludes that accountability for her own statements should be ignored because "I think these things were taken out of context I think they were said before I was going to run for office, so, I'll just leave it at that". What an evasion.

Anything she doesn't want people to know about or be held accountable for is declared "out of context" and in the "past", not to be mentioned. Her 'irrelevant past' goes all the way back to "2005" and "out of context" is her stock floating abstraction employed as the 'talking point' thrown out in a formula response 4 times in the 3 minute video about criticisms that are not described.

She doesn't describe why any of this should be regarded as "out of context", but the meaning is clear: anything that doesn't serve her political purpose, anything about herself she doesn't want you to know is "out of context". Anything in her "past", i.e., in her life, before the "now" of the facade of her public campaign spin is deemed to be irrelevant. You are only to think what she wants you to think, that is what she calls "context".

How typical. Just like an Obama, she doesn't want her own reality -- dismissed as only an irrelevant 'past' -- to be revealed or discussed, and expects a sympathetic media to protect her from people finding out. She expects a personal exemption from reputation as her due entitlement. This is so typical of the radical leftists seeking power who know they can't reveal what they really are and so demand that we must ignore it. When it is probed or leaks out they pretend to be victims.

She even seems to believe it herself. She is delusional, but "mistakes" of this magnitude are not made innocently. Her active suppression of critical comments revealing what she is deliberately evading in her PR only partially illustrates how thoroughly dishonest she is with both herself and others as she demands the power to control the rest of us.

EWV, good insight. I, too, find her response to be as bad as the original conduct. The theme is that we are not supposed to question our "betters", or those who want to rule over us.

I've seen her kind many, many, many times amongst today's Maine Dems. There is a certain silliness about today's Democrats. And it doesn't do much for people who are hurting or in need.

I'm sure that most of the observations about Lachowicz are at least in the backs of the minds of most people here, but the pattern needs to be identified, explained and communicated explicitly to expose it.

This controversy has become a major campaign flurry as the Democrats spin like crazy to try to prevent the deserved backlash against Lachowicz. Search on the web and you will find an explosion of articles all over the country plus more worldwide, mostly parroting her evasive spin that she is being "unfairly attacked" for a mere "hobby", as Republicans are ridiculed accordingly.

In general it illustrates how 'journalists', whether by ideology or incompetence or both, are routinely covering for victim-playing leftist power-seekers as relevant facts are omitted from their articles. The nonsense is already being [url=http://www.onlinesentinel.com/news/gamers-puzzled-by-republican-attack_2... in the usual Maine media[/url].

A lot of of the articles you will find are in the 'gaming community', which has falsely been led to believe that 'dumb Republicans' are attacking people who play games for recreation, in a dishonest appeal by Democrats for a new constituency.

All this spreading of misinformation no doubt pleases Lachowicz and the party hacks as advancing their political goals and never mind the dishonesty. It's power they want, any way they can get it -- which is not by allowing voters to know the relevant facts.

CNN, however, did a good interview pushing Lachowicz to the point where her ridiculous evasions became obvious. Watch the video [url=http://www.mediaite.com/tv/brooke-baldwin-grills-dem-candidate-for-her-v....

I have recieved over 1000 of these:

Dear John McKane ,

As a video game player, I'm writing you to voice my disappointment regarding your
attack on the Maine candidate.

Just because a person is a video game player and likes to play games such as World
of Warcraft, that person is not "lazy and immature" and is not unfit for public
office.

Studies by the Entertainment Software Association earlier this year found that the
video game community is made up of many people from all walks of life. They found
that the average age of video game players is 30 years old, sixty-two percent of
parents believe that game play provides mental stimulation or education, and
forty-seven percent of all players are women.

Regardless of political positions, criticizing someone for playing games is unfair
and uncalled-for.

Games are improving society, generating jobs, and contributing to our tax base. I
hope you'll keep this in mind and stop your attacks on the candidate and using
outdated stereotypes of video gamer players as an attack tool.

Sincerely,

Justin Thibodeau

The video normally works with the link on the page. If you are using firefox sometimes you have to relax the javascript restrictions to get links like this to work. But you can also try the direct utube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=SR6-TN-9efo When the page for the video comes up click on the link to start it to play.

It's not surprising. It became clear very quickly what Lachowicz and her campaign were systematically doing to spread canned misinformation in a dishonest attempt to turn their ordeal into an attack on Republicans. If you have the resources you can do a lot of good by putting together a response and answering them to discredit their dishonest sources, turning the controversy they are generating against them and shaking up their followers. This would be valuable whether or not they are coming from your district or even Maine at all.

The Bangor Daily News Blogs

The Bangor Daily News Blogs section has a great rant on this issue today. The entire piece is dedicated to making the entire Maine Republican partly look like fools for attacking this wondeful lady......just for playing a game. Nowhere to be found is any reference to the statements she made about the possible deaths of well known real people she disagrees with.

I added my thoughts to the comments section.

She can play all the games she wants on her time, it does seem that her fantasy world continues after she is done playing the game and that is the issue. I wonder if she would be playing the game in the State House instead of doing the job. Not a good track record and if it were my employee she would be a former employee.
