Pence apologizes for Facebook deletions

June 28, 2013

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence apologized Friday after his staff deleted comments from his official Facebook page that criticized a statement he issued supporting the state’s ban on gay marriage. A handful of gay marriage supporters complained that their comments were deleted and profiles blocked from the page. Pence initially said the comments were deleted because they were vulgar or inflammatory, but a review found some of the comments were deleted because they disagreed with his opinion.
