Gov. Pat McCrory on Monday signed into law a measure directing state officials to regulate abortion clinics based on the same standards as those for outpatient surgical centers, a change that critics say will force most to close.

Critics say the move represents a shift by the first-year Republican executive, who pledged as a candidate last fall that he wouldn’t approve any new abortion restrictions if elected.

Republicans… that’s the joke.  And it’s on you.

There’s no way they are going to use a fine tooth comb to demonstrate that ALL the still racially biased districts and voting changes come from the same party…their own.

It’s a non-starter.   About the closest thing they might try and do and insert some sort of Voter ID law into the Voting Rights Act  (and that, BTW, is a policy designed to lower turnout among minorities).

Yes, that’s how far gone the GOP is in the 21st century.
