North Carolina Lawmaker Looks To Investigate NCAA, ACC Over HB2

Hmm, now, this is an interesting turn of events. Let’s not forget that the NCAA, like many, many companies, held tournaments in Houston, Tx, which has a similar bill for the city when it comes to the gender confused. Let’s also not forget that the NCAA, ACC, and all sorts of companies, for all their caterwauling, refused to have their own policies which would allow the gender confused to use whichever bathroom they want at venues and offices. Consider, if you were at the ACC finals, and went into the opposite gender bathroom and got caught, you could be arrested and fined. This goes for every NCAA venue to be used during March Madness. If they cared so much, why not use cities like San Francisco and New York City, which have ordinances about letting the gender confused legally invade the privacy of the opposite biological gender? Anyhow

(WNCN) On Selection Sunday, a North Carolina lawmaker announced his plans to file a bill aimed at the NCAA and the ACC.

Representative Mark Brody (R-Monroe) wants to investigate if the two organizations violated their tax-exempt status by engaging in political or lobbying activities. This bill comes after the two organizations moved championship games from North Carolina because of House Bill 2.

In a Facebook post he wrote

There comes a time when the citizens of North Carolina need to stand up and say “Enough of this foolishness”!
Monday I will file the Athletic Association Accountability Act. It is an act to determine whether the NCAA and the ACC have violated their Tax-Exempt status by engaging in political or lobbying activities.
Specifically, the NCAA and the ACC have allegedly engaged in excessive lobbying activities that exceeded their respective charters by using economic retaliation against NC for the purpose of forcing the General Assembly to adopt social legislation that is not connected to their core mission.
I believe the NCAA and the ACC have stepped out of bounds and, to the best of my ability, will never allow the General Assembly to relinquish its legislative authority over the internal affairs of the State or succumb to economic extortion to and from either the NCAA or the ACC.

Get the popcorn!
