BREAKING NEWS: U.S. Justice Dept. TRASHES North Carolina, SLAMS State With Lawsuit!

The battle over "bathroom choice" just got nastier. Earlier today, North Carolina sued the federal government for threatening to withhold federal funds from the state after they clarified in a new law that people needed to choose public restrooms that match their biological sex, even if it doesn't match their "gender identity." But just now, the U.S. Justice Department has just filed suit against North Carolina.

According to NBC News, the DOJ's lawsuit says North Carolina's law "stigmatizes and singles out transgender employees, results in their isolation and exclusion, and perpetuates a sense that they are not worthy of equal treatment and respect."

CNN reported that the lawsuit also states that North Carolina is violating the 1964 Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, which prohibits discrimination of employees based on their gender; the 1972 Title IX the Education Acts Amendment, which prohibits gender-based discrimination in public education; and the 2013 Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act, which was originally created to aid victims of violence but now includes some protections for those in the LGBT community.

And the attacks against North Carolina are getting harsher by the moment.

In a live press conference going on right now, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch said North Carolina practices "'state-sponsored discrimination against transgender."

In comparing the new bathroom law to the Jim Crow era of widespread racial segregation, Lynch said, "We moved beyond those dark days but not without a tremendous amount of pain and suffering."

And then she made a vow to the LGBT community, saying on behalf of the U.S. government, "We see you, we stand with you and we will do everything in our power to protect you moving forward."
