Description"Republican gubernatorial candidate Paul LePage called his media tour an "absolute disaster" on Monday after he cursed at a reporter who asked questions about his residency and taxes being paid at homes his wife owns in Maine and Florida.

LePage says he feels he's explained that his wife, Ann, who owns both properties, mistakenly declared primary residency in both states, got a tax break in both states, but is now fixing the problem.

But when questions about the two residences continued at a press conference on Monday, LePage became visibly upset, saying, "Let's stop the bull--- and let's answer the questions the way they should be answered."

LePage apologized, saying he never said he was politically correct, but did admit it was an inappropriate word to say."
