  • Aspen resident hangs gay pride sign across from home where VP Mike Pence is staying

He and his wife, Karen Sue, are apparently staying in Aspen over the weekend and heading back to the Eagle County Airport on Monday.

"[The neighbor] was real sheepish and thought [they] might be confronted by the Secret Service or deputies who'd tell [them they] couldn't do it", DiSalvo told The Aspen Times.

The women reportedly became less timid afterward, and later brought out chili and corn muffins for the county deputies and Secret Service agents who were stationed at the foot of the driveway.

The residents of the home did not respond to requests from the media asking for a comment about the "Make American Gay Again" banner.

"We're not here to control your free speech rights", one of the agents said.

Vice President Mike Pence speaks to troops in a hangar at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan on December 21, 2017.

He continued: "They've been really nice to us".

In an email to the Aspen Times on Friday night, Shannon Slade said she is a girlfriend of one of the daughters of the couple living in the house, and revealed that they were the ones that posted the banner. Pence also as a history of opposing the LGBT community.

While serving as a congressman, Pence described traditional marriage as the institution "that forms the backbone of our society" and once expressed fear that marriage equality legislation would lead to "societal collapse".

In 2007, Pence spoke against a bill that would protect gays and lesbians from discrimination in the workplace.

The Mike Pence gay hate is so strong it almost destroyed his state's economy.

Pence has regularly been criticized for signing a law as IN governor that many say sanctions discrimination against LGBTQ customers.

The rest of the nation was disgusted. Soon people started threatening to boycott the state.

Over and over again, Pence has voted to prohibit same-sex marriage and permit anti-LGBT discrimination.

Rumors swirled around that Pence was an advocate of conversion therapy but this was denied by his spokesman.
