Maine Gov. Paul LePage (R) is certainly no stranger to speaking what’s on his mind, no matter how controversial that may be. On Tuesday, LePage proposed public executions via a guillotine for people who are caught trafficking drugs into the state.

From The Hill:

“I think the death penalty should be appropriate for people that kill Mainers,” LePage said Tuesday during a radio interview on WVOM. “I’m all in.”

LePage also suggested lethal injections, saying: “Actually, if you want my honest opinion, we should give them an injection of the stuff they sell.”

“What I think we ought to do is bring the guillotine back,” LePage quipped later, unprompted, as the radio hosts offered tempered laughs. “We could have public executions.”

The governor’s office said the remark was a joke illustrating LePage’s support for stricter penalties on drug crimes, according to the Associated Press.
