A federal judge in Portland, Maine ruled that evidence found by state troopers during a traffic stop cannot be used in court because officers racially profiled a black motorist before pulling him over.
Dusty Leo, a suspected white supremacist convicted of a hate crime in Maine for attacking an unsuspecting Black man and breaking his jaw because of the color of his skin, was given a light prison sentence because the judge said he was "intoxicated" and must have been "brainwashed."
Arrest data undermines Maine Gov. LePage's outrageous claims about Black drug trafficking in Maine. He refuses to release the contents of his binder with evidence.
Maine Gov. Paul LePage said he will not resign. State lawmakers and residents are urging him to step down or get professional help.

Democratic Rep. Ben Chipman of Portland, Maine has submitted a measure to impeach GOP Gov. Paul LePage over an alleged abuse of power in dealing with a charter school operator, according to The Associated Press.
