Is that Vice President-elect Mike Pence wearing short shorts? This hot guy is using his uncanny resemblance to help raise funds for something Pence would probably not approve: Planned Parenthood.
According to Buzz Feed, a very handsome man named Glen Pannell has been spotted walking around Times Square and fundraising for Planned Parenthood. Pannell, a graphic designer, actor, and activist has been dubbed "Mike Hot-Pence." He spoke to photographer Howard Sherman about his activism.
"I have family in Indiana so I knew that Pence was governor. But it wasn’t until he signed the anti-gay Religious Freedom Bill last year that I really started paying attention to him," he explains. "I’m gay so that made me sit up and take notice. And it’s those kinds of policy decisions that are energizing my activism now."
The real Mike Pence has had a longstanding contentious relationship with Planned Parenthood, including attempting to defund the organization since 2007. Activists have responded to the election by making over 82,000 donations to Planned Parenthood in his name.
Mike Hot-Pence would be proud.
