VIDEO: Dem Vitelli supports welfare to illegal immigrants

Sen. Eloise Vitelli (D-Bath) takes questions at a recent forum.

The Maine GOP has released video of Sen. Eloise Vitelli (D-Bath) saying she supports providing tax-payer funded welfare benefits to illegal immigrants.

Vitelli was elected in an August 2013 special election over Republican Paula Benoit. Her remarks on welfare policy came during a recent town hall event. An unidentified citizen asks a question about whether Vitelli agrees that the state should be funding welfare payments to “illegals.” The question is awkwardly phrased, and Vitelli attempts to rephrase it, but it’s pretty clear she knows what her constituent is asking.

After clarifying the question, Vitelli answers, “Yes.”

Check out the video here:

Although the video has yet to garner attention in the broader Maine media, it reflects a fact that is increasingly becoming clear: welfare reform and immigration policy will be a major factor in the November elections.


  1. Not surprising.

    Democratic analysis of any issue begins and ends with “It would be nice if…….”

    As Churchill said. “If you are not a liberal at twenty, you have no heart. If you are not a conservative at forty, you have no brain.”
