Earlier today, the neo-Confederate state of North Carolina sued the federal government over DOJ’s announced determination to hold North Carolina’s HB2 “bathroom bill” in violation of the federal constitution.
DOJ struck back firmly and forecefully, countersuing North Carolina. Attorney General Loretta Lynch, no less, gave a full throated defense of transgender rights, one that has never been made by anyone at the federal level.
How good was this statement? It made my friend Dana Beyer cry. That’s some powerful stuff. Bravo, Madam Attorney General.
