Regarding the May 9 news article “McCrory weighs response to federal mandate on HB2”: The governor said on “Fox News Sunday” that there has never been a transgender bathroom problem, yet he filed a lawsuit against the DOJ to defend House Bill 2, which protects us from this nonexistent problem.
What recourse do we have as residents against a legislature and governor who are wasting state resources defending an unnecessary law, solely for political reasons, I assume? Can we sue the legislature or governor personally to recover the cost of defending this law, can we sue for the damage that this law has done to our state’s reputation?
Is wasting state resources to defend a bill that seems to have been enacted solely to advance a political or religious agenda an impeachable offense? Can the legislators who wrote and approved HB2 be removed?
What recourse do we have to protect ourselves from overreaching legislators wasting state resources to promote some personal religious agenda or for political vendettas?
