Raleigh, N.C. The Office of Governor Pat McCrory released the following statement regarding the 2017 NBA All-Star Game:
"According to his own statements, Commissioner Silver has no credibility in telling America that he's more 'comfortable' playing a basketball game in the People's Republic of China with its oppressive human rights record, rather than the 9th most populous state in the U.S.A.,"
said Communications Director Josh Ellis. "This is another classic example of politically-correct hypocrisy gone mad. We are proud that Louisiana has joined 21 other states that are fighting for basic privacy expectations for our children and families in school restrooms, locker rooms and shower facilities."
