A team member of the Democrats nominee for governor of Maine tweeted a lot of sacrilegious and vulgar statements and was suspended for it.
Maine Rep. Michael Michauds team member Ben Gagnon was suspended after tweeting sexist, expletive-laden statements. The tweets were taken down by late afternoon July 22, according to MBPN News.
Some comments he tweeted include You cant enter heaven unless Jesus enters you, If youre here for the premature ejaculation meeting youve come too early and There is no good way to give a blowjob. One mans good way is another mans too much teeth.
Michauds campaign manager, Matt McTighe, said that Gagnons tweets cannot be defended and do not represent the views of the campaign, MBPN News reports.
While Gagnon was interning for Michaud, Maine Republican Party Communications Director David Sorenson said in a statement to The Daily Caller that Gagnon was featured in a picture of Michaud and his closest staff on the candidates website and in a Democratic convention video. He is a blogger on the states premier liberal blog, Dirigo Blue.

Sorenson said that its appalling that Gagnon hasnt been fired that Michaud has only suspended him. The sexist slurs and other crude remarks he flaunted online are disgusting and they reveal the Democratic Partys double standard when it comes to sensitivity in our political discourse, Sorenson said.
According to a press release from Maines Republican Party, Gagnon has a history of tweeting crude remarks and asks if Michaud himself would use such crude comments.
The Maine Republican Party is calling for Gagnon to be fired and his remarks denounced.
Michaud should immediately fire the person who made them, Maine Republican Party Executive Director Jason Savage said in a statement. I would not expect a sitting congressman and aspiring governor to allow such sexist and hate-filled behavior in his offices.
Gagnons suspension is indefinite at this point, according to Michauds gubernatorial campaign spokeswoman, Lizzy Reinholt, and they have not made any decisions on whether he will be allowed to rejoin the campaign.
But Savage said that its sad that in Michauds career, hes had more staff scandals than bills passed into law in Congress.
Hopefully he does the right thing and cleans up his campaign office this time.

This posted without the pictures. and my comment.
Best part of this is that he got pict of him with Deval Patrick, Peter Shulmin and Michael Michaud on Monday and suspended on Tuesday. If this had come out on Monday morning, he wouldn’t have the pict for his photo album.
This is the person. Ya coulda knocked me over with a feather.

Not just gay; ÜBER gay...
Even beyond that if possible.
My gaydar just pegged.
And he would be holding a piece of ‘Ravaged Fruit’.
Those are some highly inappopriate remarks to be making on a public blog. He has either got serious psychologic problems, or he was high during work hours. Emotional Maturity = a 9 year old isolated child.
Plus the guy is probably a pompous smartass everywhere he goes.
Maine Rep. Michael Michauds team member Ben Gagnon was suspended after tweeting sexist, expletive-laden statements...Gosh, I wonder if he is a Democrat? Thanks Steven Scharf.
Won’t matter: ME is the least-churched state in the Union, according to Wikipedia.
“He has either got serious psychologic problems, or he was high during work hours.”
He’s a Democrat, so you’re correct about the mental illness, and probably correct about being high! ;)
Pajama boy lookalike.
I kind of get the feeling that the BJ he’s getting ain’t from a woman.
These people disgust me.
