gender confusion 1Liberals are continuing to hammer North Carolina for protecting women and children in state law.

At issue is North Carolina's HB2, a bill signed into law a few months ago to prohibit men from using women's facilities and vice versa. Since then, the Obama administration has threatened to withhold federal education funds unless the law was rescinded. In response, North Carolina sued and is now the target of a lawsuit by the federal government.

Tami Fitzgerald of the North Carolina Values Coalition tells OneNewsNow that New York Governor Mario Cuomo is running TV ads trying to attract North Carolina businesses to New York.

"Business improvement is fine [in North Carolina] but this ad sort of intruded into the area of trying to impact the election for our governor in the fall," she explains. "And the ads reference New York's business climate as where 'true leaders' are and 'we understand the value of diversity.'"

Included with the ads is a screen shot of the North Carolina bill.

Fitzgerald

Retired state Supreme Court Justice Robert Orr has filed a complaint with New York and U.S. agencies based on the use of tax dollars to influence an election in another state. In addition, there is further interference from another source, according to Fitzgerald.

"The attorney general for the state of New York organized an amicus brief that was filed in the federal lawsuit challenging our House Bill 2," she shares. "And apparently the state attorney general for New York organized ten states to fight our bathroom law in North Carolina with this amicus brief."

Delegates to the Democratic National Convention cheered this week at the mention of boycotting the state – all because the state wants to protect women and children.
