MIKE Pence is "homeless" and is now allegedly couch-surfing with an Indiana politician after leaving office.
The former vice president and his wife Karen are residing at a cabin that Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb uses as a retreat, a source told Business Insider.
An advisor for former president Donald Trump told the news outlet Pence "doesn't have a home" or "anywhere to live" after leaving the White House.
Pence flew on a government plan to Columbus Municipal Airport on Inauguration Day to return to his Indiana home town.
He landed with his wife and two daughters, Charlotte and Audrey, after attending President Joe Biden's inauguration ceremony on January 20.
"Let me also take a moment to say thank you to President Donald Trump and Melania for all they have done to make America great again," Pence said as he arrived. "We will always be grateful for the opportunity that they gave us to serve."
He told a crowd: "I've already promised Karen we'll be moving back to Indiana come this summer. There's no place like home."
According to the Trump advisor, a handful of Republicans close to the former vice president are troubled over Pence's lack of a home or job.
It has been reported that the former Second Family doesn't own a home.
Two Republicans revealed they heard the Pences were staying at a family member's home in Columbus, Business Insider reported.
The Sun's request for comment to Gov Holcomb's Press Secretary Rachel Hoffmeyer was not immediately returned.
According to Insider, its been approximately 10 years since the former vice president and his wife owned a home.
They sold a single-family home in 1987, moved again in 1999 and bought another home south of Edinburgh, Indiana – however, it is unknown if the Pences still own the property.
In 2000, the Pences rented in Indianapolis and financial reports revealed the have not paid a mortgage since 2007, Insider explained, adding that the former VP obtained rental income from a residence in Columbus in 2008.
Some Republicans who opened up to the news outlet questioned whether Pence's safety after the US Capitol riots on January 6 – where some protesters appeared to scream "hang Mike Pence" – is causing a delay in finding a permanent home.
Meanwhile, Vice President Kamala Harris has moved into the lavish 33-room Number One Observatory Circle – which was built in 1893 and is located on the grounds of the U.S. Naval Observatory in Washington.
In 2009, it was reported that Joe Biden had revealed there is a secret hideaway "behind a steel door" in the house, although a spokesperson swiftly corrected that it is actually "an upstairs work space in the residence."
