About Maine Gov. LePage's Black "Son"

Over the weekend, newly-elected Tea Party-backed Maine Gov. Paul LePage called the NAACP a "special interest group" and told them to "kiss my butt" when they requested his presence at an event honoring Martin Luther King. LePage then offered up his black adopted son as proof that he isn't a racist. Only, wait. That black "son" of his is actually the son of LePage's golf caddy and was never adopted, although he did begin living with the LePage family in 2002. A spokesman for the governor said Raymond, now 25 and living in Louisiana, is not available for interviews.
