Mike Pence Once Ratted Out His Entire Fraternity To The Dean For Throwing A Kegger

Every party has a pooper — and it’s no surprise Mike Pence has been a steaming pile of lame long before he became Vice President.

According to a new profile by The Atlantic, Pence once ratted on his fraternity brothers for having a keg party on Hanover College‘s dry campus so HE wouldn’t get in any trouble.

Yup, he was that guy. Shocked in the slightest? Neither are we.

Dan Murphy, one of Pence’s former Phi Gamma Delta brothers, told the publication that the future Veep snitched to the dean that his fraternity brothers were violating the Presbyterian school’s strict no-alcohol party and got his entire house punished.

At the time, the fraternity was having wild parties — who could blame them? Animal House had just been released — and while Pence “was not a particularly hard partier,” the then-sophomore oversaw the house’s complicated plans to sneak alcohol into the house.

Pence was also in charge of dealing with any issues if any adults showed up. But when the occasion arose, it was every aspiring President for himself.

During one party, the brothers discovered a dean was coming to the house and, a la Animal House, scrambled to hide the evidence of their activities. When good ol’ Pence greeted the dean at the door, however, he escorted the official straight to the kegs and confessed they belonged to the fraternity!

Usually, whoever answered the door would take the blame for the party supplies so the house didn’t get in trouble. But after Pence tattle’d on his brethren, the entire fraternity was slapped with a harsh punishment. Murphy remembered:

“They really raked us over the coals. The whole house was locked down.”

Pence wasn’t in good standing with his brothers after the incident. The administration, however, LOVED him. In fact, he was so adored by school officials that Hanover offered him a job after he graduated.

Again, it’s no big news that Pence has always been a lame duck — but when’s the party pooper gonna do his job and rat out the Donald Trump administration?

18 Penn State Fraternity Members Face Criminal Charges Over Student’s Fatal Fall

(BELLEFONTE, Pa.) — Eighteen members of a now-shuttered fraternity at Penn State University and the frat itself are facing criminal charges in the death of a student who was fatally injured in a fall during an alcohol-fueled pledge night.

Eight frat brothers at Beta Theta Pi and the frat are accused of involuntary manslaughter. The other charges range from evidence tampering to furnishing alcohol to minors.

Police had said hazing and excessive drinking at the private chapter house Feb. 2 contributed to the death of Timothy Piazza, 19, a sophomore engineering student from Lebanon, New Jersey.

Penn State permanently banned Beta Theta Pi on March 30, accusing it of a “persistent pattern” of excessive drinking, drug use and hazing.

Help for Piazza apparently wasn’t summoned until about 12 hours after he was injured during events surrounding a pledge acceptance ceremony.

Piazza was found unconscious on a couch on the main floor when paramedics arrived after a call for help. He died two days later at a hospital.

Fraternity members turned over security camera footage to police but later asked the court to return it.

Since Piazza’s death, chapter alumnus Donald Abbey, a California real estate magnate, has sued the fraternity.

He wants more than $ 10 million he says he loaned the chapter to fix up the house and shore up its finances.

Racist Emails Leaked From University of Chicago Fraternity

A series of leaked emails written by members of a University of Chicago fraternity that included racial slurs about blacks and Muslims has sparked an investigation into the chapter and been described as “offensive” by school officials.

The emails, first reported by BuzzFeed on Wednesday, included describing a Muslim student as a terrorist and plans to celebrate “Marathon Luther King Jr. Day” by eating at a fried chicken restaurant and watching a movie parodying Blaxploitation films.

Officials with Alpha Epsilon Pi, a historically Jewish fraternity, told the site it will “investigate and, if necessary, work to educate the individual members about this issue” while saying that the organization was “especially sensitive to hate speech and behavior towards any minorities.”

The e-mails among fraternity brothers included multiple racially insensitive comments, including describing “two long-held fixtures” of Islamic culture as C4 and dynamite and referred to a nearby empty lot as “Palestine.”

One email was titled “Towel Heads,” in which one brother says: “Best subject line ever? Check.” The messages also include several references to the N-word, with one member saying: “There is absolutely nothing wrong with the word n—–. By calling it the ‘n word’ you are giving it power that it doesn’t deserve.”

The leaked e-mails are the latest in a series of racially charged incidents that have occurred at colleges around the U.S. University of Chicago Dean of Students Michele Rasmussen said the messages “were not consistent with the University’s values or our strong commitment to ensuring that people with diverse backgrounds and perspectives thrive on our campus.”
