Maine Mayor: ‘Name and Shame’ Welfare Recipients so Special Needs Kids Will Stay out My State
There is a new contender for the worst human being on the planet. Robert McDonald, mayor of Lewiston, Maine, said on Sunday that he wanted to publish a public registry of welfare recipients in order to keep disabled children out of his state.
“We will be submitting a bill to the next legislative session asking that a website be created containing the names, addresses, length of time on assistance and the benefits being collected by every individual on the dole,” he wrote. “After all, the public has a right to know how its money is being spent.”
“This is something born out of frustration,” he said. “For three and a half years, I’ve been putting all kinds of welfare laws, I’ve been submitting them. And the legislature is just tanking them. And what really hurts is the legislatures from Lewiston are basically stabbing me in the back.”
According to MacDonald, immigrants are not the issue.
“They’re coming into our state, and what’s happened here is we have a school system,” MacDonald opined. “And one of the things about our schools system is second to none, it’s special ed education department that attracts them all.”
