Curt Schilling: RI Governor Chafee “A Dunce of Epic Proportions”

Posted by on Aug 20, 2012 at 9:16 pm

If Lincoln Chafee is a dunce of epic proportions, what does that make a guy who pissed away $100 million and watched his company just go belly-up? I have no love for Chafee, but  I detect more than some  whining here.

Former major league baseball pitcher Curt Schilling, whose video gaming company recently collapsed, called the governor a “dunce of epic proportions.”

Schilling, who won a World Series with the Arizona Diamondbacks and then two with the Boston Red Sox, criticized independent Gov. Lincoln Chafee in a Saturday exchange on Twitter about the collapse of 38 Studios, which got a $75 million loan guarantee from the state in 2010.

Schilling tweeted that “if the state loses money it’s because the Governor is a dunce of epic proportions, nothing I can do about that.”

In follow-up tweets on Monday, Schilling also called the governor a “buffoon” and called the prospect of him getting re-elected in 2014 “terrifying.”

    He pissed away $75 million of that was TAXPAYER MONEY.
