Here’s another great use of taxpayer dollars.

State Senator Jim Tomes (can you guess his political party? Hint: it’s not Democratic) — last week proposed a bill that would slap a Class A misdemeanor on any transgendered person who used a bathroom not associated with that person’s gender at birth. Tomes said this week, “If you were born a man, then you are obliged to use the males’ restroom.”

Under a Class A misdeamnor, those found guilty could face upwards of a year in prison and as much as a $5,000 fine for using the bathroom opposite of the person’s birth-gender. The Chicago Tribune notes that, “Exceptions are made for janitors, first aid providers and parents accompanying children under the age of 8.”
