Mike Pence is not secretly porn star Brad Patton

People are claiming Donald Trump’s VP Mike Pence is secretly a former gay porn star.

But, as far as we can tell, it’s either a joke gone too far, a hoax or a complete lie.

On Twitter, one of the many tweets that have gone viral show a picture of the next vice president next to what appears to be him in his younger days.

‘Nothing ever stays in the past,’ the tweet reads.

However, this porn star is Brad Patton – a Australian-born ex-pornographic actor and ice skater who was discovered by Chi Chi LaRue and quit the business in 2008.

While there are certainly facial similarities between the two men, the likeness ends there as the two have different eye colors and vastly different political views.

Pence supports conversion therapy, as a way to ‘change sexual behavior’, a dangerous and harmful practice condemned by mainstream health groups across the entire world.

He voted for the Marriage Protection Amendment in 2006, a law that would have stopped marriage equality nationwide. He said being gay is a ‘choice’ and that preventing gay couples from marrying was not discrimination, but a means of enforcing ‘God’s idea’.

And in 2007, Pence voted against the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, a law to prohibit workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation. He said the law ‘wages war on freedom and religion in the workplace.’
