Pence neighbors in Aspen hang 'Make America Gay Again' banner

"Make America Gay Again", reads an unmissable rainbow banner wrapped around a stone pillar by the entrance to the Pence's vacation pad.

Neighbors of a home near Aspen where Pence and his wife, Karen Sue, are staying posted the message sometime last week on a stone pillar that sits at the end of driveways to both homes.

Pitkin County Sheriff Joe DiSalvo said when a man who lives in the home hung the banner, the Secret Service didn't stop him.

Pence is a Christian conservative who, as governor of IN, attempted to amend the state's constitution to ban same-sex marriages IN 2014.

This isn't the first time neighbors of the Pence family have trolled the Vice President with rainbow colors.

Moore again calls Alabama election 'fraudulent'
His filing on Wednesday in the Montgomery Circuit Court sought to halt the meeting scheduled to ratify Jones' win on Thursday. Moore and Jones ran for the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions, a Republican who became the USA attorney general.

In January, LGBTQ protesters held a "queer dance party" outside a home where Pence was staying in Washington, D.C. shortly after Trump's inauguration.

No word on how the Vice President feels about the sign. Pence said on the House floor that he feared the bill "could have a chilling effect on the religious expression and religious freedom of millions of Americans". The bill caused national outrage and IN lawmakers were eventually pressured into including some anti-discrimination protections amid threats of companies boycotting the state.

In Congress, where he was a member from 2001 to 2013 before becoming IN governor, Pence described traditional marriage as the institution "that forms the backbone of our society".

Pence arrived in Aspen on Tuesday according to the report. Citing a Harvard University sociologist during a speech on the House floor, he said, "societal collapse was always brought about following an advent of the deterioration of marriage and family". However, after the Secret Service told him they weren't there to control his "free speech rights", the residents came out with chili and fed the police officers and agents on duty. Clinton also won Colorado with a almost 3 percent lead.
