Schuette Doubles Down on Crusade Against Equality
Michigan’s Republican AG drags state into lawsuit against transgender rights
MICHIGAN — Progress Michigan released the following statement regarding the news that Michigan’s Republican Attorney General Bill Schuette joined a lawsuit attacking equality protections for bathroom use.
“Bill Schuette continues to drag Michigan through the mud in his crusade against equality and the ability for all children to feel safe at school,” said Hugh Madden, communications director for Progress Michigan.“Michigan Republicans like Schuette choose to walk on the wrong side of history in their backwards attempt to preserve discrimination and ignorance that continues to plague our state and country around the issues of transgender rights. This lawsuit is a waste of time, state resources, and it’s an embarrassing example of how Schuette will disgrace Michigan so he can appease his right-wing donors.“
