“Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is rumored to have decided on Indiana Governor Mike Pence

Meanwhile, this no longer a rumour, but a fact.

as his potential vice presidential running mate, after much consideration. That could result in a disaster if Pence’s record for PR failures is any indication.

Here are the top five things anyone should know about Mike Pence that could make him a liability on the GOP ticket…

Mike Pence is one of the Koch brothers’ favorite elected leaders. Support from the Koch brothers and conservative donors are a major component in a presidential run, so having the major money people’s favorite guy at your side if you’re new to politics is certainly helpful for campaign cash. Americans for Prosperity has been holding up Mike Pence’s work in Indiana as a paragon of a good governor. Pence’s former chief of staff now runs the Koch’s political group Freedom Partners. Given the fact that the Koch’s have pledged to spend $1 billion in the 2016 election to support conservative candidates, his ties could be an asset to Trump as he realizes his own financial limitations.”

Why Mike Pence’s Nomination Is TERRIBLE For Women

14 July 2016

Trump’s running mate instituted some of the most restrictive reproductive rights laws in the country. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. …

“When Indiana Governor Mike Pence passed one of the nation’s most restrictive anti-abortion bills, Hoosier ladies trolled him by calling him up and talking about women’s health and Auntie Flo.

Indiana Governor Mike Pence could be the next vice president of the United States, if he edges out the other names on Donald Trump’s rapidly-shrinking VP shortlist—but he’s probably not the guy to solve Trump’s “women problem.” That’s because Pence has supported, sponsored, and signed some of the country’s most extreme anti-abortion legislation in the past decade.

In March, Pence signed a bill that, among other restrictions, bans abortion sought because of a fetal anomaly like Down syndrome and requires abortion providers to bury or cremate fetal tissue. Indiana is the only other state besides North Dakota to ban abortion motivated by fetal anomaly—a provision that a federal judge has already deemed unconstitutional.”
