McCrory Campaign Responds To Roy Cooper’s Support Of Charlotte Bathroom Ordinance
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Raleigh, N.C. – Today, McCrory Campaign Manager Russell Peck issued the following response to Attorney General Roy Cooper’s support of the Charlotte Bathroom ordinance:
“An attorney general – a state’s top lawyer and chief law enforcement officer – has a sworn obligation to promote public safety and represent the people above special interests. In supporting a radical special interest plan to open bathrooms and locker rooms to the opposite sex, Roy Cooper is failing families and children across North Carolina.”
Roy Cooper expressed his support of the ordinance after the Council of State meeting on Tuesday morning. He said the Governor and General Assembly should not overturn the ordinance.
There’s more from the NCGOP newsletter:
Now, an analysis of his gubernatorial campaign finance reports reveals Cooper has received almost $20,000 in campaign contributions from LGBT-aligned groups that have been advocating for the dual-sex Charlotte bathroom ordinance. To see the full list of Cooper’s donors, click here.
As I’ve said before…
Reminder: Roy Cooper refused to enlist North Carolina in an Amicus brief on the same topic, wherein the suit was an attempt to stop the US Department of Education from suing states and school districts in order to force them to allow transgenders to be able to use opposite sex facilities.
Reminder: Cooper actually had a staffer call McCrory a “bully” for asking the Attorney General to stand up, do his job and defend North Carolina children. Surprise, surprise, that staffer has an LGBT activism history.
