Justice Department sues to block HB2 – NC Capitol


The Watch Dog response: This is just getting crazy. Sad the NC GOP are taking this to the extreme. What? Did they think folk would be silent on the issue?

Washington — The U.S. Justice Department on Monday sued to block North Carolina from enforcing the provisions of House Bill 2 that dictate what bathrooms transgender individuals can use.

“None of us can stand by when a state enters the business of legislating identity and insist that a person pretend to be something or someone that they are not or invents a problem that does not exist as a pretext for discrimination and harassment,” U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch said during a Monday afternoon news conference, calling House Bill 2 “state-sponsored discrimination.” (NC Capitol)
