Mike Pence Exposed as ‘One of the Greatest Threats to Equality’ in New Campaign by LGBT Rights Group

 
 
 
Mike Pence is "an extremist who is amassing power and exerting influence with less scrutiny than any vice president in U.S. history," says the Human Rights Campaign, in a full-throated exposé on the Vice President.

In an 18-page report, a website, and several videos, HRC is turning its attention to the man who would become president should Donald Trump not finish out his term.

"With Donald Trump mired in lurid scandals and investigations that threaten his presidency, Mike Pence has flown under the radar, amassing enormous power in an administration hobbled by clueless advisors, inexperienced staffers and a revolving cast of lawyers," HRC says. "Pence is exploiting that alarming leadership void by quietly spearheading a charge to radically undermine the rights of LGBTQ people and women, attack voting rights, undercut sound science, and enable the greatest assault on American institutions in modern history."

“Mike Pence has made a career out of attacking the rights and equal dignity of LGBTQ people, women and other marginalized communities. Now as vice president, he poses one of the greatest threats to equality in the history of our movement,” HRC President Chad Griffin adds. “With the world distracted by Donald Trump’s scandal-ridden White House, Mike Pence’s nefarious agenda has been allowed to fly under the radar for too long. He has become not only the most powerful vice president in American history, but also the least scrutinized. No more. With this comprehensive new report, HRC is exposing the extent of Pence’s extremism, the threat he poses to equality, and all that we’re doing to combat his hateful agenda.”

For example, HRC has released this two-and-a-half minute video exposing Pence's virulently anti-LGBT past (below):

"The New York Times reported on Wednesday there has been some speculation about the possibility that Pence could run 2020 on a ticket with the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, although Haley has denied such an alliance," Newsweek notes.
