Mike Pence's NFL Game Walkout Cost Indiana Police $14000

Mike Pence's NFL Game Walkout Cost Indiana Police $14000”

After Trump's year 1, GOP poised to dominate again in 2018 Cornyn: Senate GOP tax plan to be released Thursday Pence to visit site of Texas church shooting on Wednesday MORE's National Football League trip last month cost the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department more than $14,000, according to a government ethics watchdog.

The former IN governor left the Colts game after some San Francisco 49ers players took a knee during the national anthem.

"I asked @VP Pence to leave stadium if any players kneeled, disrespecting our country".

The exit cost the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department more than $14,000, according to CREW's review of documents. The police department will have to absorb that cost. This cost is in addition to the reported approximate travel cost of $242,500 for Pence to fly from Las Vegas, NV, to Indianapolis, IN, and then to Los Angeles, CA, where he went afterwards for a fundraiser.

Many believed Pence leaving the stadium was a premeditated stunt orchestrated by the White House, costing taxpayers thousands of dollars.

Trump latched on to the "take a knee protests" initally popularized by former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Pence and his wife, Karen, left the October 8 game between the Indianapolis Colts and the San Francisco 49ers within minutes of their arrival, after roughly 20 49ers players kneeled in protest of police brutality against blacks.

Pence sent out several tweets related to the game he left early, including one of himself and his wife, Karen, standing for the anthem.

But Libowitz pointed to a tweet Pence sent out that day which reportedly pictured him attending a 2014 home game, saying the vice president's staff "most likely had it cued up ahead of time".

"The tone is set at the top when it comes to this administration's disregard for ethics", CREW Executive Director Noah Bookbinder said in a statement provided to HuffPost.
