Is Mike Pence Showing Anti-RFRA LG the Door?
INDIANAPOLIS – Drew Anderson, communications director for the Indiana Democratic Party, released the following statement after news broke on Lieutenant Governor Sue Ellspermann seeking the president’s post at Ivy Tech Community College.
“The announcement that Governor Mike Pence is encouraging Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann to leave his administration to go to Ivy Tech was unexpected. By showing Lt. Governor Ellspermann the door now, Mike Pence is doubling down on an out of touch ideology which threw Indiana into a $250 million economic panic and caused the state to have its ‘Hoosier Hospitality’ reputation placed in jeopardy. And as Hoosiers prepare for what will be RFRA 2.0, the lone moderate voice in the Pence Administration is being shooed away. Ellspermann’s departure is not coincidence, it’s Mike Pence once again choosing to play political games to save his career rather than solving today’s problems for everyday Hoosiers.”
