Republican Shane Bouchard resigned as Lewiston’s mayor effective immediately on Friday morning. Text messages made public by a woman who said she had an affair with Bouchard when he was a mayoral candidate revealed a racist remark he sent her while the two were working together.
The Sun Journal reported that Heather Berube Everly made public more than 150 text exchanges with Bouchard. In one, Bouchard describes elderly black people as “antique farm equipment.” The exchanges also expose voter fraud attempts by Bouchard.
