Nothing to see here folks, keep it moving.
Indiana Gov. Mike Pence could become the next vice president of the United States, but he has gone out of his way to prevent people from seeing his congressional record. If the man was proud of his work, would he have sealed it from the public? I doubt it!
Pence is believed to be on Donald Trump’s shortlist of potential vice presidential candidates.
His congressional library, housed at Indiana University in Bloomington, is closed until either Dec. 5, 2022, or Pence’s death.
“It’s not standard, but it’s not unusual,” Dina Kellams, the school’s director of university archives, told The Huffington Post.
The website noted that former Sen. Richard Lugar (R-Ind.) put similar restrictions on his own congressional papers before opening up some parts of his archives.
Kellams said Pence could open up his library if he chooses.
Pence met with the presumptive Republican nominee and his children Wednesday in Indiana as the businessman inches toward naming a running mate. Trump is expected to pick his VP by the end of the week.0
