Maine GOP Chair to Seth Carey: Drop Out of Your Race
AUGUSTA – Today, Maine Republican Party Chair Dr. Demi Kouzounas is calling on Seth Carey to drop out of his run for District Attorney for Androscoggin, Franklin, and Oxford counties, following credible accusations of physical violence against a former client of his:
"We in the Maine GOP don't believe in convicting people in the court of public opinion for political purposes, but when there are actual, credible allegations, they must be taken with the utmost seriousness.
Fighting domestic and sexual violence is more important than political ambition, and we've got to keep our priorities straight. This charge must be addressed, first and foremost, and our good people in central and western Maine should not have a cloud of doubt hovering over their heads.
To ensure that, Seth Carey should withdraw from his race. It is the right and only thing to do."
