What Happened in North Carolina

This is a must read summary of the twelve-hour rollback of civil rights in North Carolina.

One of the worst parts of the bill is that it absolutely takes the teeth out of whatever protections it didn't gut. If, for instance, you suffer from racial discrimination in housing, you are expressly barred from going to court over it.

It's a grab-bag of anti-LGBT and anti-workers laws, with provisions that mean no locality can do anything about anything, from minimum wage to LBGT protections. And it took them just 12 hours from first calling the special session to signing the bill.

Breathtakingly brazen.

Vote Blue in November, from the top of the ticket to the bottom.
