Happy Monday! This is what happened over the weekend.
1. Update: HB 2 is still bad.
Quick recap of where we’re at in regards to the five pages of dogshit known as the Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act.
Over 120 business leaders, including Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook and Marissa Mayer of Yahoo, signed onto a Human Rights Campaign letter opposing HB 2, saying, “This is not a direction in which states move when they are seeking to provide successful, thriving hubs for business and economic development.”
“The Republicans have done them a favor,” said William Eskridge Jr., a Yale law school professor who teaches about gender, sexuality and the law. “It’s like some Republicans were on salary for the gay rights groups and ACLU.”
In other words, it’s a rousing success.
