Pence Will Amend ‘Religious Freedom’ Law

Embattled Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) took a second crack at trying to “clarify” his state’s controversial new “religious freedom” law, the Indianapolis Star reports.

Pence concluded “we’ve got a perception problem” and said “it will be helpful to move legislation this week to amend the law to make it clear that it does not give businesses the right to deny services to anyone.”

Brad Phillips: “The bottom line? If you have to call a press conference to clean up a bad media interview during the biggest political crisis of your career, you have a self-imposed media disaster on your hands.”
