 AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine's governor has told the National Football League's commissioner that it's unconscionable for the league to punish Baltimore Ravens player Ray Rice with a two-game suspension for a domestic violence arrest.
Maine Gov. Paul LePage wrote a letter to Roger Goodell this week. The outspoken Republican says he is appalled by the slap on the wrist given last month to Rice, who struck his then-fiancee in Atlantic City, New Jersey, in February.
LePage, who was beaten by his father when he was young, has made domestic abuse prevention and awareness a priority of his administration.
He said that simply suspending players for domestic violence can send a poor message to young men that such behavior is acceptable and shows that the league ''has no compassion'' for the victims.
