Sadly, so many governors currently in office make it a point to give tax breaks for jets and yachts and turn their heads to crumbling schools and crowded classrooms that there just wasn’t room to include all of the worst offenders in one article.
But we’re listening, and decided to add five more bad actors to our list based entirely on your comments. Please share these graphics with your networks now! After all, most of these governors are up for re-election this fall, and people need to know what they really stand for.
#5: Maine Gov. Paul LePage
#4: New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez
#3: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie
#2: North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory
