Those would be the same freakazoid bills - the infamous HB2 - that cost North Carolina billions of dollars in lost revenue from corporations fleeing the state in disgust.
And why, you ask, has this traitorous piece of shit not been disowned by the Kentucky Democratic Party? Because there is no Kentucky Democratic Party. Which explains just about everything.
Also, Rick Nelson is a coward. He never dared pull this shit when Greg Stumbo controlled the Democratic House.
Kentucky Democrats: Finding new ways to make Kentucky a National Laughingstock.FRANKFORT, Ky. — Two controversial social conservative bills that many top Republican leaders have de-emphasized in recent months were filed in the Kentucky House on Tuesday by a Democrat.Rep. Rick Nelson, a Democrat from Middlesboro, filed the transgender bathroom bill (House Bill 106) that would require public schools, state universities, state government and local governments to designate that bathrooms they control "only be used by persons based on their biological sex."And Nelson's House Bill 105 is similar to past "religious freedom" bills filed in the legislature. It says that no law, regulation or court order shall impair the exercise of rights guaranteed by the constitutions of the United States and Kentucky including "a person's right of conscience" and freedom of religion."I just want to make sure those bills are out there in case the other side decides not to do them. I support them and think they're pretty good," Nelson said.He said both bills are nearly identical to ones filed in recent legislative sessions but blocked in the House, which until Tuesday was controlled by a Democratic majority.SNIPChris Hartman, director of the Fairness Campaign, said Wednesday that he's concerned about Nelson's two bills."Together these bills are North Carolina's House Bill 2," Hartman said, referring to a controversial law that was met with a response that included cancellation of sporting events and business expansions.Hartman said that the "religious freedom" bill would allow owners of businesses to discriminate by refusing service based on beliefs. "It would subvert fairness ordinances in the eight Kentucky cities where they exist."
