Mike Pence Must Return Taxpayer Money Spent on Publicity Stunt

Target: Mike Pence, Vice President of the United States

Goal: Return hundreds of thousands in taxpayer dollars spent on publicity stunt at football game.

Vice President Mike Pence spent more than a quarter of a million dollars in taxpayer money on a football game, which he left, as planned, after several minutes because he was unhappy that players demonstrated their constitutionally protected right to free speech. He wasted taxpayer money and must return it immediately.

Pence’s trip to the football game between the Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49s was nothing more than a political publicity stunt. Pence and his wife left after players kneeled for the national anthem. However, reporters and staff members were told beforehand that Pence was planning to leave the game, showing that the whole thing was just a Trumpian publicity stunt.

It is ironic and disgusting that an elected constitutional official, whose campaign had sought out and supported Russian espionage, would then have the gale to attack citizens for exercising their freedom of speech, all while blowing hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayer money.

Sign the petition and demand that Pence return the money to the American people.


Dear Vice President Pence,

Your recent publicity stunt at the Indianapolis Colts game cost American taxpayers nearly $250,000. You knew you were planning to leave the game and yet still used taxpayer money to fund your plane, security, and more. All of this was for political show, to appease the president and his base.

While you think your actions may be a noble defense of the national anthem, they are nothing more than a means of robbing the American people. If you want to see what true honor looks like, simply look at the players on the field, civilly disobeying the government without hurting fellow Americans. I demand that you return the $250,000 in taxpayer money you stole from the American people.

  1. Geez, you people just never give up. You are so full of absolute bullshit!! He left because of the arrogance and disrespect to our country. I’m glad he did…and you should be also.

    • Judie Braaten says:

      It was a PLANNED publicity stunt, and if you watched anything besides Faux News, you’d understand WHY people are kneeling and why VETERANS have voiced their approval.

      • Judie, black players are kneeling and disrespecting our country because of a misplaced feeling that they are at war with our police…they are totally ignoring that black on black violence kills many more of them every day in the cesspools of our major cities Veterans kneeling? Might be, but not any of my veteran friends, and yes, I’m a veteran also. And it was not a planned publicity stunt…but let’s say that it was…are you going to ask obumma for the full auto firearms that he screwed up and sent South of the border that ended up in the hands of gang members and terrorists, hmmmm? Can’t have it both ways, now can you?

        • Black and white players are kneeling in exercise of their first amendment rights, and if you actually had a black friend, they would tell you how out of line and unequally police treat them. Its fine for white supremacists to march carrying torches but not fine for black athletes to practice their constitutional rights? They are not ‘disrespecting our country’ that is ridiculous. Blaming Obama (Trumps favorite passtime) for gang members carrying automatic firearms is just as absurd and doesn’t even make sense. Obama tried countless times to get legislation passed to ban automatic firearms, and each time NRA cronies in Congress blocked it from passing. Get a clue

          • I’ve got more than a clue, Art, and you are sorely misled by the liberal loonies you apparently hang with. I’ve got to love your comment about obumma trying to ban automatic firearms…he never tried, you know why? Because they’ve been banned for public ownership since 1934!! Sort of makes your whole comment null and void, doesn’t it? I don’t know where your comment about white supremacists comes from because I think they should all be locked up!

  2. It was a publicity stunt at taxpayers expense! What don’t you understand??

    • You apparently don’t read and comprehend very well…Pence is a fan of the team! What he wouldn’t take was the disrespect for our country. There was not one damn thing about it that was a publicity stunt. Do you not have the courage of your convictions? Pence does!

  3. Don’t pay any attention to Frank. He’s obviously a Kool-Aid drinker.

  4. Trish Waddleton says:

    What Frank and the Trump Admin are trouncing is the 1st Amendment – The First Amendment states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” These NFL players are expressing their rights given and fought for by our forefather’s in The Bill of Rights. As a United States citizen – black, white, yellow, red, brown or tootie fruitie we have the right to question our Government regardless of whether u agree with it of not. We do not bow down to a sovereign king because George Washington would not accept his position as leader of this Country as being a kingship. He became President at the will, power and pleasure of the people of the 13 Colonies. There are 3 governing bodies to insure there is no tyranny from those that govern “We the people”. Frank when u and other past present and future veterans joined the military I don’t think there was a box where u could check off which amendment u were defending. When we loose our inalienable Rights as Americans we loose the fundamental basics of our Constitution and of our Country. Its those Rights we should be defending not an Administration that is rapidly trying to chip away at them.

    • Get one thing straight Trish, I have absolutely no problem with their excercising their first amendment rights…none at all. What I disagree with is their platform and the disrespect of the flag. You’ve apparently had no education on the history of our country and the people who have died for these freedoms…white, black, oriental, all the races and genders who have paid the ultimate price for these yahoos to act out like a bunch of school kids.

  5. Gen Lovyet Agustsson says:

    u people are ignoring the illusions of money.

  6. Mike and his wife enjoy sports. They wanted to stay, but National Football league players need to honor the nation and stand/show respect for the team/nation they play for. If people don’t honor the nation then live somewhere else.

  7. Pence,
    A true american would applaud the exercise of peaceful demonstration. A nazi suppresses it. You belong with Trump, but neither of you belong in the US. Go to Russia which got you both elected. You’re Putin’s kind of people.
