LePage Spins Windmill Conspiracy Theory

Maine Gov. Paul LePage (R) claimed the University of Maine is trying to trick people into thinking that windmills are working, the Bangor Daily News reports.

Said LePage: "Guess what, if it's not blowing wind outside and they have somebody visiting the campus, they have a little electric motor that turns the blades. I'm serious. They have an electric motor so they can show people that wind power works. Unbelievable. And that's the government that you have here in the state of Maine,"

A university spokesman says that when there's no wind the turbines don't spin at all.
