Former North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory Monday claimed the state’s bathroom law has made it hard for him to secure a job.
McCrory, speaking on the WORLD podcast, explained that the backlash over HB2, the state’s transgender bathroom law, has affected his job prospects, reports The Hill.
Talking about the legislation, McCrory explained that it “has impacted me to this day, even after I left office. People are reluctant to hire me, because, ‘oh my gosh, he’s a bigot’ – which is the last thing I am.”
Many liberal groups who fought against the bill hurt his reputation, McCrory said.
“If you disagree with the politically correct thought police on this new definition of gender, you’re a bigot, you’re the worst of evil,” he said. “It’s almost as if I broke a law.”
