Westbrook, MAINE – In case you missed, Maine people are criticizing Silent Shawn Moody’s refusal to answer questions. In a letter to the editor in today’s Portland Press Herald, reader Jennifer Jones of Falmouth expressed her disappointment with Silent Shawn for declining to answer the Maine SundayTelegram’s questions on commonly-discussed gun safety reform measures. He was the only gubernatorial candidate of the 14 asked who did not answer.
“I’m not asking Moody to abandon his declared support for the Second Amendment. I’m just asking him to tell us what he thinks about these reforms,” wrote Jones. “Don’t the people of Maine deserve to know that from a person who wants to be their next governor?”
