Target is in hot water with more than just consumers! Turns out, the retailer is the object of Texas's ire too. After the company opened its bathrooms and dressing rooms to people of either sex, more than 1.1 million Americans protested. And 1,100,001 must be Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R), who is calling Target on the carpet for a potentially dangerous and unsafe public policy. In a letter to the company's CEO, Paxton outlined his concerns. "It is possible that allowing men in women's restrooms could lead to criminal and otherwise unwanted activity. As chief lawyer and law enforcement officer for the state of Texas, I ask that you provide the full text of Target's safety policies regarding the protection of women and children from those who would use the cover of Target's restroom policy for nefarious purposes."
Given the overwhelming response to Houston's bathroom ordinance (which voters overturned in a landslide), Paxton warns that while Target may have the freedom to create a gender free-for-all, it shouldn't be surprised if shoppers reject it. Fox News's Todd Starnes, who broke the news about Paxton's letter, had the chance to talk to AFA's Tim Wildmon about the development. And he, like us, was grateful that someone in a leadership position is standing up to ask the tough questions. While so many political leaders kowtow to the radical agenda of corporate bullies, we applaud bold conservatives like Ken Paxton for stepping in to protect innocent Americans when so many others refuse.
