Kimpson didn't hold a thing back:
Kimpson, a Democrat, took to the floor of the Senate Thursday to complain about gun reform bills not getting a hearing but then directed his frustration at a bill introduced by Sen. Lee Bright, a Spartanburg County Republican.
"Yesterday South Carolina sank to a new low," he told the Senate. "We're going to have the Lee Bright genitalia patrol for bathrooms in South Carolina. That is the most blatant form of intrusion, of discrimination of sexual orientation. Now we are becoming the laughing stock in the nation because we are joining North Carolina, Tennessee and Mississippi."
. . . Kimpson said Bright's bill has generated a hashtag, #peewithlee which is making "a mockery of the state."
"A transgender person should use the restroom that corresponds to his or her gender identity," he said. "Under peewithlee's Bright's bill, we're now going to have the genitalia bill now checking birth certificates at the restroom door. I can't imagine a more ridiculous bill."
According to GreenvilleOnline, the bill has a dim chance of passing. Let's cross our fingers.
