Pat McCrory, far from admitting that the anti-transgender legislation was a big mistake, now blames it on the Democratic Party.
RALEIGH, N.C. — Gov. Pat McCrory blamed the anti-lgbt discriminatory legislation known as House Bill 2, or HB2, on Liberals.
During a press conference, he blamed Attorney General Roy Cooper, and Charlotte Mayor, Jennifer Roberts over HB2, saying that he had no choice but to create this legislation, in response to Charlotte passing a pro-LGBT ordinance that required private businesses to allow transgender individuals to use the bathroom of their choice.
During the conference, McCrory said: “The state of North Carolina, the City of Charlotte and especially small businesses were being used as a pawns by Roy Cooper, by the mayor of Charlotte and by the Democratic Party on an issue that was made up purely for political purposes and to raise money,”
“You might need to ask the mayor of Charlotte and Roy Cooper that brought up this question, not the right.”
Then he charged against media, saying: “The media, both the statewide media and the national media, give the clear impression it was the right that created the bathroom rules.”
That may be because a Republican-controlled legislature called themselves back into a special session to pass the law in one day. McCrory, a Republican, signed the measure the same day.
