I bet ANYTHING he’s been plotting with the Dominionists and Christian Nationalists ever since Trump tapped him. Trump thought he’d use Pence, but that’s only to get him into the White House….after that, Trump lives only if Pence and the Christian fundies decide it’s useful to keep his heart beating….which it won’t be for long.
Vice President-Elect Mike Pence’s hatred for gays has been evident throughout his career. The Indiana governor went as far with his hatred as losing his state millions of dollars to try and fight against homosexuality by allowing businesses to discriminate against members of the LGBT.
According to BP Pence is fighting in court to keep his emails under wraps. But why would the ever-wholesome, soon-to-be vice president, need to hide his personal or business emails? Perhaps because he has been up to some pretty immoral shenanigans himself, or maybe the things he has said about the LGBT in those emails are so revolting that even a Republican can’t get away with it.
With Hillary Clinton’s email scandal being the likely reason she lost the election, it is pretty scandalous that the vice president-elect is now hiding his own emails. Also, since Donald Trump insisted that Hillary Clinton be jailed and possibly even executed for her emails, it is only fair that Pence be imprisoned too, right?
According to Indy Star:
“The administration is fighting to conceal the contents of an email sent to Gov. Mike Pence by a political ally. That email is being sought by a prominent Democratic labor lawyer who says he wants to expose waste in the Republican administration.”
“But legal experts fear the stakes may be much higher than mere politics because the decision could remove a judicial branch check on executive power and limit a citizen’s right to know what the government is doing and how it spends taxpayer dollars.”
Gerry Lanosga is an Indiana University professor who thinks that this could spell great trouble for Americans. Langosa says:
“It comes down to this — the court is giving up its ability to check another branch of government, and that should worry people.”
Pence’s legal team says that the emails are “attorney work product protected by Indiana’s Access to Public Records Act — and at the end of the day, matters of public records are not for a court to decide.” So it is the privacy of those involved in court cases that pence is worried about, and not hiding whatever it is that he said about those clients. Right.
