Watch: Gov. Mike Pence Dodges Questions On Indiana’s New Law and LGBT Equality

Following Indiana Governor Mike Pence’s brutal interview recently on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos, the Human Rights Campaign has released its own new video that highlights the eight different times that he ducked, dodged, and declined to answer simple, straightforward questions about Indiana’s new law and whether discrimination against LGBT Hoosiers should be illegal.

Stephanopoulos asked multiple straightforward questions, and Pence repeatedly refused to answer whether the law would allow businesses to discriminate against LGBT Hoosiers or whether discrimination against LGBT Hoosiers should be illegal. Pence did indicate that he would not advocate for adding sexual orientation as a protected class under the state’s civil rights laws, that they “weren’t going to change” SB 101, although it may be “clarified.”

The Human Rights Campaign is America’s largest organisation working to achieve LGBT equality in the U.S.. HRC envisions a world where LGBT people are embraced as full members of society at home, at work and in every community.
