Bull Semen Tax Emerges as Issue in Maine Gubernatorial Race (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Oct 8th 2010 5:08PM
On the 'The Ed Show' (weekdays, 6 PM ET on MSNBC) Ed Schultz played a video clip of candidate for Maine governor Paul Lapage making a most unusual anti-tax point in front of what looks like a town hall meeting

"I don't know if you know this, but the state of Maine is the only state in the United States of America that charges sales tax on bull semen," Lapage said on the clip, before pausing for effect. "Did you hear that? Bull semen."

After the clip ended Schultz corrected LaPage, stating "Lapage is flat out wrong on this one, that particular substance has been exempt from sales tax since 2005." In other words, LaPage's claims about bull semen appear to be bullshit.
