RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A spokeswoman for a socially conservative group that supports North Carolina’s new law limiting anti-discrimination regulations for LGBT people has become communications director for the state Republican Party.
The party announced the hiring of Kami Mueller this week. She had been working for the North Carolina Values Coalition, which strongly backs House Bill 2. The measure also directs transgender people in government buildings and schools to use restrooms aligned with their biological sex.
Mueller has worked previously for Lt. Gov. Dan Forest. She was also communications director for a group leading the effort to get a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage approved by voters in May 2012.
