Vice President Mike Pence abruptly left a football game between the Indianapolis Colts and the San F. National anthem protests took center stage late last month after Trump demanded the NFL fire players who knelt in protest over social injustices.

Pence wanted to attend the game because former star quarterback Peyton Manning was being honored.

But Pence left early, saying he wouldn’t “dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our flag, and our national anthem." Critics called it a pre-planned political stunt at taxpayers’ expense.

Lucas declined through an aide to comment Wednesday.

Here are some other notable aspects of Pence's disclosure report:

Other gifts

Besides the tickets to the Colts game, Pence also received three tickets to the 2017 Super Bowl in Houston that were valued at $15,000. The prime seats were courtesy of Bob McNair, owner of the Houston Texans. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway gave Pence two tickets valued at $1,000 to last year's Indy 500. Pence received tickets to the annual galas for the American Ireland Fund and for Ford's Theater. And Pence's alma mater, Hanover College, gave him a lamp (valued at $260) and a chair (valued at $450). The furniture is displayed in his West Wing office.

Bunny money

The Pences received between $15,001 and $50,000 in royalties for "Marlon Bundo's Day in the Life of the Vice President," a book about the family rabbit written by Pence's daughter, Charlotte, and illustrated by Second Lady Karen Pence. Charlotte and Karen Pence are donating the proceeds to an art therapy charity and a nonprofit that fights slavery and human trafficking. 

Modest assets

The Pences disclosed between $516,000 and $1 million in retirement funds, and a bank account valued at between $1,001 and $15,000 as their only reportable assets. Pence served in Congress for 12 years before becoming Indiana's governor in 2013. He received $6,610 in final salary from Indiana in 2017 before being sworn in as vice president in January. (He earned $230,700 as vice president last year, up from the $111,688 he made as governor.)

Credit card debt

The Pences had revolving credit card debt valued between $15,001 and $50,000 last year, a new item since their 2016 disclosure report. The report also lists at least $100,000 in outstanding loans from helping put their three children through college. 

Will Trump’s financial disclosure report include any reimbursements to Cohen? .
President Donald Trump’s annual financial disclosure is due to a government ethics watchdog on Tuesday, but it’s unclear whether he will report reimbursing his attorney for payments made to Stormy Daniels or when the public will see the document. Walter Shaub Jr., a frequent Trump critic who ran the Office of Government Ethics until last summer, said the disclosure may well document loans to Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen, who has said he made a $130,000 payment to Daniels, an adult film actress who alleges she had an affair with the president years ago. Under a 1978 ethics law, the president would need to disclose any liability from the previous calendar year that exceeded $10,000, Shaub said.
