From the ABC affiliate in southeast Texas:
Port Neches-Groves Superintendent Dr. Rodney Cavness on Thursday slammed the Obama administration’s expected letter which is set to tell districts to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms of their choosing. Dr. Cavness did not mince words when telling 12News anchor Kevin Steele.
“I got news for President Barack Obama. He ain’t my President and he can’t tell me what to do. That letter is going straight to the paper shredder. I have 5 daughters myself and I have 2,500 girls in my protection. Their moms and dads expect me to protect them. And that is what I am going to do. Now I don’t want them bullied, but there are accommodations that can be made short of this. He is destroying the very fiber of this country. He is not a leader. He is a failure.”
