    NC faces Monday deadline to answer feds on transgender bathroom law
    North Carolina is running up against a Monday deadline – set by the Obama administration – to either scrap the state's controversial transgender bathroom law or face legal action and risk losing federal funds.


    Republican Gov. Pat McCrory, who told “Fox News Sunday” he will make a decision by the end of the day, said the issue goes well beyond North Carolina now that the Justice Department is getting involved.

    But he would not say what his decision will be when repeatedly pressed for an answer, saying only that he’s exploring “all legal options.”

    One option could be a court challenge.

    The state law requires transgender people to use bathrooms that correspond with the sex on their birth certificate. McCrory says the North Carolina law applies only to government offices, universities and road-side rest stops, not every bathroom in the state.

    The Justice Department, though, sent McCrory a letter Wednesday stating the law violates federal civil rights laws.

    The governor said he asked the department for an extension and was given only until the close of business Monday.

    “I don’t think that three working days is enough time for such a pretty big threat,” he told Fox News. "It’s the federal government being a bully, making law.”

    McCrory also said he doesn’t have the legal authority to change laws and that the expectation that he can is “unrealistic.”

    McCrory, who signed the bill into law in March, said last week that the department seems to be breaking new ground in claiming the North Carolina law violates Civil Rights Act protections against discrimination in education and the workplace.

    And he said the administration's warning means the issue is no longer confined to North Carolina.

    “This is not just North Carolina,” said McCrory, arguing that every university that accepts federal funding is now in the same situation as those in his state.

    Meanwhile, the administration is expected to soon take the bathroom issue further, to ensure that transgender student rights are fully protected under federal law, according to Politico. The move reportedly would be related to a federal law that prohibits sex-based discrimination in federally funded education programs and activities, and multiple agencies are expected to be involved.

    The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    Trump could make big points if he backs up the Governor. Ted Cruz did and would.

    Trump needs Cruz.

    They're really fighting hard for grown men to share facilities with female children.

    This is why I don't understand liberals losing their minds over a Trump presidency.

    He's a centrist for the most part. And while I don't agree with his stance on this transgender bathroom fiasco, he gets a lot more right than he does wrong.

    "Grown adult men, strangers, should not be alone in a bathroom with little girls." - Ted Cruz

    How will the 1/1000th of 1% of the population that this law affects ever survive?





    It's good to know though that our Justice Department doesn't have a single legitimate fucking issue to pursue at the moment. :facepalm:

    He dressed in drag, hoping for a Section 8 discharge. But he STILL had the good taste to use the men's latrine:

    Just like abortion rights the men seem to be the ones concerned with this. Women don't care.

    Oklahoma man arrested after woman spots him in toilet

    A Tulsa man remained jailed Monday on a peeping Tom complaint after authorities discovered him inside a septic tank beneath a women's bathroom at a Sand Springs water park.

    Kenneth Enslow, 52, was arrested Sunday after a woman called police. She had taken her 7-year-old daughter to the bathroom and noticed a man looking up at her from inside the toilet, Tulsa County Sheriff's Maj. Shannon Clark said.

    "He went in there, climbed down in the septic and was looking up at the people utilizing that facility," Clark said.

    Enslow, who was covered in human waste, was helped from the septic tank by members of the Keystone Fire Department, who sprayed him off with a fire hose and then transported to a hospital for evaluation, according to a sheriff's report.
