Maine Gov appoints Tea Party activist to transition Team

Pete Harring, perhaps better known as Pete the Carpenter, is a Tea Party leader, owner of the Maine Refounders Web site, and one of the angriest and most inflammatory people in Maine politics.

He's also a part of Governor-elect Paul LePage's Transition Advisory Team, which, according to a post by George Smith here at Down East "will interview candidates for administration positions in state agencies." LePage announced Tuesday at a press conference that the advisory team members themselves will also be eligible for these positions.
