AUGUSTA, Maine (WKOW) -- Author Stephen King is calling the governors of Wisconsin, Florida and his home state of Maine the three stooges and is wondering why he isn't taxed more.

King made the comments at a rally last week in Sarasota, Fla., supporting education, unions and veterans. The horror author and outspoken Democrat compared Maine Gov. Paul LePage, Florida's Rick Scott and Scott Walker  to "Larry, Curly and Moe. That's what we've got here."

All three Republican governors have drawn fire from unions over pensions, and in Wisconsin, state worker union rights.

In a video of the speech posted on YouTube, King also asked why, "as a rich person," he doesn't have to pay more in taxes. He said the explanation by Republican leaders that it will discourage jobs is "bull, it's total bull."
