"HB2 suckers," by Kevin Siers, The Charlotte Observer.

Governor-elect Roy Cooper and The Charlotte City Council, including Mayor Jennifer Roberts, were confident that a repeal of the Charlotte LGBTQ non-discrimination ordinance would result in the North Carolina General Assembly repealing House Bill 2. After all, they promised.

The NCGA, fresh off a special session where they stripped power from Cooper, once again showed they were not to be trusted. They adjourned for the year without repealing HB2.

Kevin Siers casts Roberts and Cooper as suckers in his latest cartoon.

Siers previously drew a cartoon warning that an HB2 compromise was a bad idea because the NCGA cannot be trusted. If only they had listened.
