False claims abound as governor and allies attempt to defend the indefensible

RALEIGH -- In their attempt to ward off widespread criticism over HB2, Gov. McCrory and his allies have repeatedly resorted to pushing false claims and willful ignorance about their misguided and bigoted law. This week, Gov. McCrory’s “war on facts” continued with a disastrous appearance on Meet the Press.

Gov. McCrory also admitted during the interview that he didn’t meet with a single transgender person before signing HB2, and laughably accused Hollywood of being hypocritical when it comes to LGBT rights because "The new Batman and Robin movie is playing in China.”

“Gov. McCrory is learning the hard way that bigotry is difficult to honestly defend,” said Gerrick Brenner, executive director of Progress NC Action. “If Gov. McCrory is unable to defend HB2 without resorting to false claims and bogus scare tactics, maybe he should not have rushed to sign it so quickly. North Carolina is losing millions in economic activity thanks to this discriminatory law, but instead of admitting he was wrong and calling for a full repeal of HB2, the governor is spreading false claims and attacking the messenger in order to save his own skin.”

Previous false claims made by Gov. McCrory and his allies in defense of HB2 include:
