WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Family Research Council (FRC) criticized a Department of Justice letter threatening action against North Carolina because the state repealed a Charlotte ordinance that punishes businesses that designate restrooms for men only and women only.  

Earlier today, Family Research Council (FRC) launched a second social media ad campaign  across North Carolina that questions President Obama's priorities after five federal departments began investigating the state’s new law designating restrooms for men only and women only. 

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins released the following statement:

“The Department of Justice is totally out of control. The far-Left bullies at the Department of Justice are threatening action against North Carolina because the state designated restrooms in government buildings for men only and women only.  

“President Obama’s hypocrisy is stunning.   If President Obama truly wanted to, he could issue an executive order bringing this kind of bathroom chaos to every federal agency and national park in America. However, he hasn't because he knows how unpopular it would be.

“We stand with North Carolina and urge its leaders to stand up to this abuse of power.  If the President won’t rein in the Department of Justice, then it’s time for Congress to do so,” concluded Perkins.
