As NE AG Don Peterson and the Nebraska Family Alliance target trans people, a new ad defends them

As Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson, pursues his personal, scorched-earth, antiLGBT agenda on the taxpayer's dime, a new ad will air during the GOP and Dem conventions. Peterson hired the policy director of the Nebraska Family Alliance and made him Nebraska's Chief Deputy Attorney General.
     Bydalek is quite a piece of work.
     In 2014, he testified before the Unicameral's Judiciary Committee against adoption reform in Nebraska, citing the infamous Regnerus Study as evidence against adoption by gay couples, despite the fact that Mark Regnerus' study was:
  • engineered and funded by right-wing groups to influence SCOTUS gay marriage deliberations
  • discredited by 200 PhDs and MDs
  • excoriated by the prestigious American Sociological Association
  • called "bullshit" by Darren E. Sherkat, an editor of the very journal that published it, after he was assigned to audit the study following the uproar it caused
From the YouTube description:
     This groundbreaking new ad depicts the challenges faced by transgender people in accessing public restrooms—and highlights the lack of state and federal nondiscrimination protections for transgender people. The ad will have its national TV debut on FOX News Channel next Thursday, July 21, during the final night of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. It will air nationwide again on MSNBC during the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia one week later.
     FairnessUSA is a joint project of the Freedom for All Americans Education Fund, the Movement Advancement Project (which created the ad), the National Center for Transgender Equality, and the Equality Ohio Education Fund, with support from the Equality Federation Institute, the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, and the National Center for Lesbian Rights.
