Actually, Houston, we have several problems:
The city of Houston passed a law that would allow members of the opposite sex to use each other’s restrooms, in the name of “prohibiting discrimination,” known as HERO (Houston Equal Rights Ordinance).
Voters weren’t so thrilled, and responding by petitioning to repeal the ordinance or at least, put it up for a vote. They got over 50,000 signatures, more than three times the required number. The city secretary, (who is entrusted by law to examine and certify petitions) certified them as sufficient.
But the mayor and city attorney defied the law, claimed less than the required number of signatures was valid – and threw out the petition.
In response, several petitioners organized a lawsuit.
That didn’t sit too well.
