From Metro Weakly:
In yet another anti-LGBT move this year, lawmakers in the North Carolina House of Representatives pulled a sneak attack through an amendment that would strip away the ability of local municipalities to enact ordinances prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) blasted the last-minute amendment and called upon lawmakers to reject the bill.
“Fair-minded North Carolinians should be outraged at this despicable attempt to strip away local control and deny municipal governments the ability to pass nondiscrimination protections for their LGBT residents and visitors,” said HRC President Chad Griffin. “We urge the North Carolina Assembly to reject this outrageous attack on LGBT North Carolinians and their families, and we urge Governor Pat McCrory to come out strongly in opposition to this disgraceful legislation.”
That’ll teach ’em!
I can hear the North Carolina Legislature withdrawing the bill now – and all without anything being done that will detract from Chad Griffin’s salary!
Everyone’s a winner!
Well, everyone who is anyone…
