Pence’s nameplate was yanked from its position over the door at the direction of Pelosi, NPR reported. She plans to provide a new space for the White House legislative affairs team, which did not have an office under her predecessor, former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.).
Pence still has an office in the Senate wing, where he officially serves as that chamber’s president.
The Hill confirmed that Pence was given the boot. “Room assignments are reviewed and changed at the beginning of every Congress,” an aide told The Hill.
The unnamed aide added that no other vice president has had an office in the House in 25 years.
Still, the move did seem in line with Pelosi embracing her much less formal title: “Patron Saint of Shade.”
CSPAN producer Craig Caplan shared before and after pictures, from 2017 and this week:
VP Pence got his House side 1st floor US Capitol office in early February 2017 from Speaker Paul Ryan. 2 years later, his name over his former office door has been removed under new House Democratic majority. https://t.co/hDxKuy5W03pic.twitter.com/UocRvWWhu4— Craig Caplan (@CraigCaplan) March 13, 2019
