Howie Carr Cites The Maine Wire in Segment on Welfare Reform

on

Legendary conservative talk show host Howie Carr was talking welfare reform on Tuesday and referenced a story first reported by The Maine Wire.

Carr spoke about the federal government’s increasing federal intervention in states’ administration of welfare programs including the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) February denial of Gov. Paul LePage’s proposal to put photo identification on Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards.

“Indeed, according to a report at The Maine Wire, LePage first learned of the USDA’s denial in the Portland Press Herald in mid February, a paper — a real piece of crap, I might add — owned by Pingree and her husband S. Donald Sussman,” said Carr.
