Congressman Michael Michauds campaign came under fire today following the release of a controversial video.
It was made by a multimedia company and included clips of the gubernatorial candidate and supporters while on the campaign trail.
The controversy erupted over a portion of the video that contained a rap song in which it declared Michaud the king of Maine and also made a rude comment about Senator Susan Collins performing a sexual act.
The Maine republican party released a statement calling the video appaling and inexcusable and demanded that Michaud publicly denounce it and cease promoting the video.
The video was made by a private multimedia company called Knack Factory and Michaud's staff says it had nothing to do with its production.
His campaign has also asked that it not be distributed and be taken down from media websites.
