Are Maine truck drivers brainless? One Democratic official thinks so.

An Auburn Democrat is taking fire after the Maine Republican Party obtained an email rant he sent to various public officials.

In the typo-ridden, profanity-laced email, Rep. Brian D. Bolduc (D-Auburn) belligerently ridicules truck drivers whom he believes are irresponsibly using their “jake breaks” too close to his house. Bolduc’s email is scathing towards Maine truck drivers and includes stern orders and threats directed at police and town officials.

Rep. Brian Bolduc, D-Auburn

Wrote Bolduc, “We need more police survalence to crack down on this sh**. They rumble past our homes before they get to the bridge and to turn onto mill street especialy those god damed lumber trucks. They release those breaks and our floors and windows rumble and the sound scares pets and children in our homes. You would think the drivers would have enough common courtesy not to do this infront of residential homes but then again one look at them and you can see they probably dont have a whole hell of allot of brains in their heads.” (Emphasis added)

Bolduc further directs local officials to take corrective action to address the brainless miscreants driving lumber trucks: “I want a cruiser stationed on this road (you can use my driveway) every day between 630 am and 8pm (wich is when the traffic is running) for a week and i want to see citations stacking up or ill have every damned resident of this town who lives on a busy road in that city council chamber!”

Bolduc did not a return phone call seeking comment about this email.

Jason Savage, executive director of the Maine Republican Party, disclosed the email to Maine media after a public official forwarded the rant. He called on Democratic Party leaders to condemn Bolduc’s comments.

Contacted via telephone, officials with the Maine Democratic Party declined to comment.

“Representative Bolduc demonstrates a level of disrespect in this email that I believe the hard-working people of Maine will find shocking,” said Savage.

“Not only is Representative Bolduc clearly bullying the recipients of the email, he also takes a deeply offensive shot at hard-working Mainers who drive truck for a living,” he said. “For a politician representing a party that claims to look out for working people, showing this level of contempt for those very working people is revealing.”

According to Bolduc’s legislative profile, he is a certified secondary school Social Studies teacher. He has previously served in the 118th, 119th, 124th, and 125th Legislatures.

Here is the original text of Bolduc’s message:

We need more police survalence to crack down on this shit. They rumble past our homes before they get to the bridge and to turn onto mill street especialy those god damed lumber trucks. They release those breaks and our floors and windows rumble and the sound scares pets and children in our homes. You would think the drivers would have enough common courtesy not to do this infront of residential homes but then again one look at them and you can see they probably dont have a whole hell of allot of brains in their heads.  I want something done about it pronto I want a cruiser stationed on this road (you can use my driveway) every day between 630 am and 8pm (wich is when the traffic is running) for a week and i want to see citations stacking up or ill have every damned resident of this town who lives on a busy road in that city council chamber! sincerely,  Brian Bolduc
