The Pence family's neighbors hung the above banner on a pillar at the end of the two houses' shared driveway, The Aspen Times reported Friday.

Pitkin County sheriff's deputy Michael Buglione tells the Aspen Times that Secret Service agents weren't bothered by the sign.

"[The neighbor] was real sheepish and thought [they] might be confronted by the Secret Service or deputies who'd tell [them they] couldn't do it", DiSalvo told The Aspen Times. He has opposed legislation prohibiting discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people in the workplace.

He said the man and other neighbours have been "really nice" to authorities.

'When they said: "We're not here to control your free speech rights", they came out with chili and began feeding them.

Prior to becoming vice president, then-Indiana Governor Pence signed a religious freedom bill into law in 2015, only to issue a clarification after the state was threatened with widespread boycotts over concerns the law discriminated against the LBGT community. Later, he signed an amendment to that law that protects that community.

He has also been accused of being a proponent of "conversion therapy", a practice which purports to change individuals' sexual orientation via spiritual intervention.

President Donald Trump once said of Pence, during a conversation about gay rights, "Don't ask that guy - he wants to hang them all", according to the New Yorker.

Vice President Mike Pence's political action committee has taken in $2 million this year, and he is using that to help Republican candidates in the 2018 midterm elections, according to a new report.

The Pence family, who arrived in Aspen on Tuesday for a holiday vacation, is expected to leave on Monday and head back to the Eagle County Airport.
