At least one North Carolina Democrat seems willing to throw LGBT community under the bus

Reported in Governor’s office: HB2 repeal possible if Charlotte drops LGBT ordinance first.  (Raleigh News & Observer, 9/16/2016)
Naturally, Republican legislators are delighted with this proposal.  But repealing the Charlotte ordinance, which broadened LGBT protections before it was nullified by HB2, would meet resistance. One gay rights spokeswoman Friday called the proposed compromise “the same cheap trick” lawmakers have floated before. It’s unclear whether the council would have the votes to repeal its ordinance.
