Indiana Gov. Mike Pence drew fire on Thursday after his staff deleted hundreds of pro-gay comments from his official Facebook page. The flood of comments, which staff deemed uncivil, came after Pence announced his support for an effort to use a ballot measure to implement a constitutional ban on gay marriage in the state. The American Civil Liberties Union said Pence's staff may have acted illegally, if the page is considered a public forum and the messages were blocked based chiefly on their opposition to Pence's position.
