Best Response To Bathroom Bill

Lee Bright Loses Re-election

Staff Pick

Whatever you think about former S.C. Sen. Lee Bright, he was really inclusive when it came to his assault on progress. Whether it was launching efforts to register refugees entering the state (sound familiar?), fighting to keep the Confederate battle flag on Statehouse grounds, or attempting to infringe upon the rights of the transgender community by bringing a version of North Carolina’s “bathroom bill” to South Carolina, Bright cast a wide net to keep the state in the dark ages. While it’s difficult to tell what the future holds for Bright, he has sworn to reintroduce legislation to restrict local governments from allowing transgender Americans from using public facilities associated with their gender identity. That is, if voters ever give him another chance. —Dustin Waters
