Attention, sniveling bigots: Indiana University publicly rejects HJR-6 as Mike Pence squirms some more.


From Megan Robertson, as deposited to my inbox. Perhaps never has it been so thoroughly amusing to money-first GOP functionaries in the Hoosier state being forced to confront their self-defining social prejudices. It makes me laugh out loud. Really.

Big news! Today, Indiana University became the latest member of Freedom Indiana, our growing, statewide coalition to defeat HJR-6.

In the announcement, IU President Michael A. McRobbie said:

“As a major employer in the state, IU competes with universities and companies around the world for the very best talent, and HJR6 would needlessly complicate our efforts to attract employees to our campuses around the state.”

Indiana University’s support sends a strong message that we want our state to be an inviting place to study, work and live, and it’s the latest example of the incredible momentum we’re building to defeat HJR-6.

We’re incredibly excited to add Indiana University to our growing list of coalition partners.
