Vice President Mike Pence reportedly snitched on his Phi Gamma Delta fraternity brothers for having a keg at a party on his college’s dry campus and got his entire house in trouble.

Pence, then a sophomore at Hanover College, alerted the dean that his brothers were violating the small Presbyterian school’s strict no-alcohol policy, his former fraternity brother Dan Murphy told The Atlantic in a profile published on Tuesday.

At the time of the incident, the fraternity was reportedly having wild parties re-creating its favorite scenes from Animal House, which had recently been released. Pence “was not a particularly hard partier” but oversaw his brothers’ complicated plans to sneak alcohol into the house and was in charge of ironing out any issues with adults if things went wrong.

During one rowdy bash, the brothers found out a dean was coming to the house and tried to hide evidence of their illicit activities, according to the article.

The future vice president greeted the dean at the door and proceeded to direct him straight to the kegs, telling the official they belonged to Phi Gamma Delta, his former brother said.

This was a major departure from the fraternity’s usual practice: Whoever answered the door took the blame for the booze so the whole house wasn’t formally disciplined, according to Murphy. But after Pence allegedly snitched, the entire fraternity was handed a harsh punishment.

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

Pence’s brothers were furious with him, but he maintained a good relationship with the administration. In fact, he was so beloved by school officials that Hanover offered him a job after he graduated, according to The Atlantic.

The profile also divulges other details from Pence's college days in Indiana. In one picture in which he’s donning a fortune teller costume, Pence, who believesthat women and men should never dine alone, smugly looks at the camera while a woman sits on his lap.

He wasn’t a particularly stellar student and had a B average, according to The Atlantic. An evangelical Christian, he once attended a music festival billed as the Christian Woodstock and spent days “rocking out to Jesus-loving prog-rock bands and born-again Bob Dylan imitators.”

The future vice president reportedly “agonized over his ‘calling’” and talked about becoming a priest, Murphy said, although it was “obvious” that Pence wanted to be president one day.

This is how people get ahead in life. I'm almost forty years old and spent my life being the guy who doesn't say shit and I have watched rat ass co workers be promoted and advanced for doing these exact things. Granted it isn't always the best idea to be the guy that is known to be a kiss ass to the bosses but 99 percent of the time they aren't looked at as a snitch in the eyes of the boss.

The fact that he is where he is proves he had much more to lose if he got in trouble than the other fraternity members. I would have been pissed at the time if they shut down my kegger but they need to let it go at this point

The snitching part was not cool but I kind of enjoyed hearing about Pences religious acts. I went to a Christian rock festival once and it was no alachol. I prefer to drink but I still rocked out to Jesus.

It sounds like he helped sneak it in and then only gave up the goods once confronted at the door--which is more honorable than playing the "I don't know what you mean" game and making them search the house. That's an adult way to handle it--you are busted give it up.

That said, the real dispute appears to be over him not just eating all the blame himself. If that was the standing practice, then I agree with them being mad over it:

"This was a major departure from the fraternity's usual practice: Whoever answered the door took the blame for the booze so the whole house wasn't formally disciplined, according to Murphy. But after Pence allegedly snitched, the entire fraternity was handed a harsh punishment."

So if he is such a rat, that means he must be telling the truth on Flynn, right? :)

and what kind of trouble would the person answering the door get in for taking the entire hit? 

Not it's worth it, and not sure if I believe that any decent students actually did this, unless the penalty wasn't shit.

That said, I do not want any president who's goal in life has always been to be president.
