LePage says he continues to have "a real hard time getting over what Bob Kraft did to the state of Connecticut." The Patriots owner terminated a deal to move the franchise to Hartford in 1999.
The governor also says the Patriots were wrong to have selected Aaron Hernandez when it knew "he was a bad guy from the get-go." The ex-player is now a murder convict.
LePage also bashed the Patriots before their appearance in the Super Bowl two years ago. He's a fan of the New York Giants.
