Newsweek came out with an article today shedding light on an incident that occurred while Mike Pence was in College. Most of the information is lifted from what Pence’s former fraternity brother Dan Murphy told the Atlantic. (If you read that entire Atlantic article then you are a better person than me.)
Vice President Mike Pence reportedly snitched on his Phi Gamma Delta fraternity brothers for having a keg at a party on his college’s dry campus and got his entire house in trouble.
Pence, then a sophomore at Hanover College, alerted the dean that his brothers were violating the small Presbyterian school’s strict no-alcohol policy.
At the time of the incident, the fraternity was reportedly having wild parties re-creating its favorite scenes from Animal House, which had recently been released. Pence “was not a particularly hard partier” but oversaw his brothers’ complicated plans to sneak alcohol into the house and was in charge of ironing out any issues with adults if things went wrong.
During one rowdy bash, the brothers found out a dean was coming to the house and tried to hide evidence of their illicit activities, according to the article.
The future vice president greeted the dean at the door and proceeded to direct him straight to the kegs, telling the official they belonged to Phi Gamma Delta, his former brother said.
This was a major departure from the fraternity’s usual practice: Whoever answered the door took the blame for the booze so the whole house wasn’t formally disciplined, according to Murphy. But after Pence allegedly snitched, the entire fraternity was handed a harsh punishment.
“They really raked us over the coals. The whole house was locked down,” Murphy told the magazine.
Pence’s brothers were furious with him, but he maintained a good relationship with the administration. In fact, he was so beloved by school officials that Hanover offered him a job after he graduated, according to The Atlantic.
This has got to be the least surprising story I’ve ever heard. Do you know what kind of person becomes a spineless politician? The kind of dude that narcs on his fellow fraternity brothers for having a keg on a dry campus. The kind of guy that uses his slimeball move of selling out his friends to his personal benefit. That’s Mike Pence in a nutshell.
I have been the victim of multiple narcs. Let me tell you there is nothing that inspires more rage than the feeling you have towards your narc. I can only imagine the collective hate from the fraternity that Mike Pence felt.
Is that what fuels him? Perhaps the man gets off on the idea of having massive amounts of people hate him. If this is the case then life in 2017 must be like one continuous orgy for the VP.
College is when you find out who the narcs are. All three of my incidents of getting snitched on for partying occurred in College. If you learn to identify who the squares are in college you can learn to avoid them in the workplace after you graduate.
Hey Pence what do you do if you get pinched for partying?
