Professor of Government Dan Shea is quoted in a Washington Post story about Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence, who has been called “apologist-in-chief” for cleaning up Donald Trump’s “messes.” While most vice presidential candidates are on the offense, Pence’s role is reversed. “He has gone from attack dog to pooper scooper,” Shea told the Post, which placed part of the quote in its headline in the Aug. 4 story.
