Republican Self-Evaluation of the Day

Rep. Gary Pendleton (R-Wake County), on the likelihood that the NC General Assembly might repeal some of HB2: “Some people are so far out there on the right that they don’t care.”

Just how brave is this Rep. Pendleton? He took an excused absence when HB2 was voted on and admits his cowardice: “When I saw it was coming up, I didn’t go to the session,” he said. “I wasn’t going to go down there and get harassed and harassed and harassed to vote for something I just didn’t want to vote for.”

I'm a coward, but those other Republicans are crazy!

“Pendleton’s waffling on HB2 after supporting it back in April is a transparent attempt to save his own political skin,” said Gerrick Brenner, executive director of Progress NC Action. “Businesses and sports leagues have been speaking out against HB2 since day one, but only now that his re-election is in jeopardy does Pendleton want to do anything about it.”
