Oklahoma’s legislators aren’t messing around. They are so outraged by President Obama’s recent legislation allowing transgenders in public school bathrooms, that they are officially calling for Oklahoma’s Congress to start impeachment proceedings.
Obama’s actions are controversial, and boys and girls should use the restroom in accordance to their birth gender.
Oklahoma’s Republican-dominated legislature has filed a measure calling for President Barack Obama’s impeachment over his administration’s recommendations on accommodating transgender students, saying he overstepped his constitutional authority.
Lawmakers in the socially conservative state are also expected to take up a measure as early as Friday that would allow students to claim a religious right to have separate but equal bathrooms and changing facilities to segregate them from transgender students.
The bill introduced on Thursday night could force schools into costly construction, which would be difficult for them to complete after lawmakers significantly cut education funding to plug a $1.3 billion state budget shortfall.
The impeachment resolution also introduced on Thursday night calls on the Oklahoma members of the U.S. House of Representatives to file articles of impeachment against Obama, the U.S. attorney general, the U.S. secretary of education and others over the letter.
State Representative John Bennett, a Republican, said in a statement the White House directive was “biblically wrong,” and a violation of state sovereignty.
he Oklahoma bill would allow for segregation at school restrooms, athletic changing facilities and showers if a request is made to accommodate religious beliefs.
Oklahoma is standing up for our children’s restroom safety.
After 8 years of Obama’s increasingly progressive laws, it’s up to states like Oklahoma to check some of those laws. Impeachment is certainly an aggressive response to Obama’s progressive bathroom rules.
