A "white girl" from Maine took to Facebook Saturday to respond to Gov. Paul LePage’s recent controversial comments about "white women" and drug dealers.
During a meeting on substance abuse last week, the Republican governor condemned out-of-state drug dealers in remarks that have been called racist.
"These are guys by the name D-Money, Smoothy, Shifty. These type of guys that come from Connecticut and New York. They come up here and sell heroin, then they go back home," he said.
"Incidentally, half the time they impregnate a young, white girl before they leave, which is a real sad thing because then we’ve got another issue we have to deal with down the road," LePage added.
Becca Edwards, the mother of a biracial child, started her Facebook criticism of LePage acknowledging she doesn’t "usually" post things on the subject. But LePage’s words "should not be tolerated," she said.
“Last week the governor in Maine, my state, suggested to the world that if one were to see me (the white girl) and my daughter (the biracial girl) walking down the street, that she is a product of my involvement with a drug dealer from out of state,” Edwards wrote. “And even worse, that she wasn't wanted.”
“My daughter's father (the black guy) is....wait for it...my husband! Even more crazy, he's not a drug dealer! What?!?” Edwards scoffed. “He's a well-educated man with an excellent job in education, in fact. And our daughter, was so wanted.”
Edwards concluded with the hashtag "impeachlepage" and encouraged others to share her post to show what a biracial family in Maine "really looks like."
In a press conference Friday, LePage acknowledged that the use of the phrase “white girl” was a mistake.
"If I slipped up and used the wrong word, then I apologize to all the Maine women,” he said. However, the governor has maintained that his remarks were not racist.
A representative from Hillary Clinton’s campaign has called the “racist rant” both “offensive and hurtful.” The Democratic National Committee has demanded that GOP candidate Chris Christie denounce LePage's endorsement. Christie said he will stand by LePage.
Maine House legislators are expected to introduce impeachment legislation against LePage on Thursday for unrelated accusations, according to local media.
ABC News has reached out to Edwards and LePage for comment.
