NORTH CAROLINA: Former Governor Pat McCrory Is Having A Hard Time Finding Work Because HB2

The Raleigh News & Observer reports:

Former Gov. Pat McCrory says the backlash against House Bill 2 is making some employers reluctant to hire him but he’s currently doing consulting and advisory board work.

McCrory has been appearing frequently in interviews with national media outlets to defend the controversial LGBT law, but he hasn’t announced what’s next for his career. In a podcast interview recently with WORLD, an Asheville-based evangelical Christian news website, McCrory talked about his challenges on the job market.

The former Republican governor says HB2 “has impacted me to this day, even after I left office. People are reluctant to hire me, because, ‘oh my gosh, he’s a bigot’ – which is the last thing I am.”

McCrory says he’s also being considered for part-time teaching positions but that university administrators haven’t made any offers yet because they fear student protests. At one point he was reportedly under consideration for a post with the Trump administration, but nothing ever materialized.
