Gov. Mike Pence admitted Friday that some angry constituents were right.

Some of the hundreds of comments that his staff deleted from the governor’s official Facebook page this week were targeted, Pence said, because they expressed disagreement with his opposition to gay marriage.

And that went beyond the office’s internal policy of removing only profane, inflammatory or uncivil comments, Pence concluded.
