Bathroom bill sponsor is the real danger

Posted By on Tue, Apr 12, 2016 at 9:39 AM

Rich. Meet Tennessee Republican Rep. Jeremy Durham, a sponsor of one of those bathroom bills: From Raw Story (and others report this as well):

Last week, Tennessee House Speaker Beth Harwell exiled state Rep. Jeremy Durham from his offices at the War Memorial Building and limited his access to other areas after Attorney General Herbert Slatery issued a warning that the lawmaker’s behavior posed “a continuing risk to unsuspecting women who are employed by or interact with the legislature.”

Slatery’s office is leading an investigation into multiple sexual harassment complaints against Durham. Although the investigation is not complete, Slatery said that the warning was necessary because of information learned during interviews with 34 different women.
We can rest easy in Arkansas. The good religious Republicans in Arkansas who have pressed to bar restrooms to all but the anatomically correct and to otherwise ensure legal discrimination  against LGBT people would never be caught up in a sex scandal.
