Senator Bingham hightails it

It appears that the override of Governor Perdue’s veto of the mislabeled anti-choice disaster known as the “Woman’s Right to Know Act” will pass the Senate and become law — at least until the courts strike it down.

And it looks like the women of North Carolina can thank Senator Stan Bingham for this offensive assault on their fundamental rights. The Davidson County Republican, who said he followed his conscience and voted against the bill when it first passed the Senate, has now decided to hit the road today after this morning’s Republican caucus.

A sad, sad day and an amazing display of gutlessness by Bingham.
