Maine Governor Paul LePage claims his comments about drug dealers named “D-Money” impregnating white girls were not racial.

On Wednesday night, the Republican governor made the following remarks about drug trafficking at a town hall meeting: 

“These are guys with the name D-Money, Smoothie, Shifty—these types of guys—they come from Connecticut and New York, they come up here, they sell their heroin, they go back home. Incidentally, half the time they impregnate a young white girl before they leave, which is a real sad thing because then we have another issue we have to deal with down the road.”

In a news conference this morning, LePage appeared to walk his prior statements back. Or something.
