NC Gov. McCrory Launches Anti-Trans Attack Ad Amid Slide In Polls

North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory has said repeatedly that his concern with allowing transgender individuals to use the bathrooms and locker rooms of their choice is merely a privacy issue, not one of safety. A recent slide in the polls seems to have inspired him to change his tune to one more embracing of the politics of fear. He must be learning something from all those Trump rallies he’s been attending recently.

In a new campaign ad, a sexual assault victim is trotted out to imply a connection that is simply not there, as Charlotte‘s NPR outlet WFAE makes clear.

In fact, North Carolina good place a guard on every bathroom door checking birth certificates and it wouldn’t have made a bit of difference in this woman’s case, as she was assaulted by her brother in their home.

“At nine, I was molested by a teenager,” Gina Little says. “When I found out that President Obama and Roy Cooper want to force schoolchildren to share the same locker rooms, shower and restroom with someone who claims the opposite sex, I was horrified.”

The fact that they couldn’t find someone who was attacked by a transgender person in a locker room or bathroom, or someone using laws allowing trans people to use facilities matching their gender identity, is telling.
