Oklahoma Republicans Call For A ‘State Of Emergency’ And The Impeachment Of The President Over Fear Of Transgendered Children Using Bathrooms

Today Oklahoma lawmakers passed concurrent resolutions rejecting the federal government’s directive on trans-inclusive restroom access, going so far as to declare a "state of emergency" over the matter.

The first measure, sponsored by state Sen. Brian Bingman (R) and state House Speaker Jeff Hickman (R), restricts students around the state from using restrooms according to their gender identity. Senate Bill 1619 states in part...

It being immediately necessary for the preservation of the public peace, health and safety, an emergency is hereby declared to exist, by reason whereof this act shall take effect and be in full force from and after its passage and approval,

The second measure named Resolution 43, filed by state senator Anthony Sykes and sponsored by Rep. John Bennett (R), calls for the U.S. House of Representatives to issue articles of impeachment against President Obama for the bathroom directive. 

Rep. Bennett says of the Obama administration's guidance...

"This directive to schools is not only unlawful, but the breadth of overreach in this instance by the Obama Administration is shocking. We are working on legislation that would protect our citizens by not requiring our kids and women to share a facility with anyone who 'identifies' as a gender that they were not born. We are going to do everything we can to protect our women and children."
