Mike Pence Doubles Down on His Ideology, Supports Discrimination Against LGBT Hoosiers
INDIANAPOLIS – Drew Anderson, communications director for the Indiana Democratic Party, released the following statement after Mike Pence double downed on his out of touch ideology to openly discriminate against the LGBT community in his State of the State Address.
“It’s baffling how delusional Mike Pence is on ‘The Golden Rule’ and the commonsense idea to protect all Hoosiers from discrimination. Pence’s claim that there’s no direct correlation between LGBT rights and the Hoosier economy is one from an ideologue – not a governor. When he signed RFRA last year, Mike Pence threw Indiana directly into a $250 million economic panic. Mike Pence doesn’t ‘abhor discrimination’ – he actively promotes it, and that is why Indiana’s “Hoosier Hospitality” reputation is in jeopardy. Hoosiers deserve a governor who won’t put their ideology ahead of the state’s overall well-being. That person is John Gregg.”
