NC House speaker weighs special session on Charlotte LGBT ordinance

That's right, North Carolina lawmakers are going to waste about $42,000 a day of taxpayer dollars – that's more than the average North Carolina teacher's starting salary – trying to strip local control from the City of Charlotte and its residents. Worse yet, they're going to these extraordinary lengths to advance discrimination and put North Carolina on the wrong side of history.


Above is from HRC, I am mad at them right now over supporting Kirk, but time to pay attention again for all of us.

N.C. House Speaker Tim Moore said Thursday he’s exploring a possible special legislative session to deal with a controversial provision of Charlotte’s expanded nondiscrimination ordinance.

Moore and others object to the so-called bathroom provision that would allow transgender people to use the restroom of their choice, depending on the gender with which they identify.

In an email to GOP lawmakers, he said, “the recent radical actions of the Charlotte City Council … pose a real danger to public safety concerning the sexual identity and bathroom matters … If we do not act, the Charlotte ordinance will go into effect on April 1.”

1. NCGOP is pure evil here.

They openly target gay rights knowing they have gerry-rigged themselves into a permanent majority.
