Shitter Sergeant John Kavanagh's toilet police badge.
Toilet policeman and Republican Representative John Kavanagh has dumped his "bathroom birther" bill, which would have criminalized the use of a public restroom if the sex on someone's birth certificate doesn't match the sign on the door.

Still, Kavanagh's not giving up -- he's got another proposal to regulate toilet usage in the state of Arizona.

Kavanagh tried to sneak in his original proposal using a "strike everything" amendment but has now used another "strike everything" amendment to make that bill, SB 1432, have nothing to do with toilets.

Last week, after people noticed that the bill purposely targets the transgender community, Kavanagh announced at the committee hearing that it would have to be delayed, because they didn't have the "appropriate paperwork" due to a "communication breakdown." It apparently had nothing to do with all the people who showed up to the hearing in protest.

But Lavatory Lieutenant Kavanagh is no quitter, especially when he's doing others' bidding -- in this case, the Center for Arizona Policy's bidding.

So, Kavanagh's new proposal is another "strike everything" amendment, this one on Senate Bill 1045, which passed the Senate as a bill related to "unprofessional conduct for a health professional." Instead, Kavanagh wants it to be about toilets.

Among other points in the proposed amendment, Kavanagh wants to make it so "no person or business shall be civilly or criminally liable for denying access to privacy areas based on gender identity or expression."

Another part essentially goes after the City of Phoenix's ordinance -- although Phoenix's has nothing to do with bathrooms, specifically -- by saying that only the state government can regulate "access to privacy areas in places of public accommodation based on gender identity or expression."

Kavanagh has scheduled this bill to be heard in the House Appropriations Committee, of which Kavanagh is the chairman, tomorrow.

What did this fiasco cost the taxpayers? How about all the other critical bills that are being ignored like reform Arizona's draconian mandatory minimum sentences laws that put non-violent, first offenders in prison for 75 years -- defacto sentences that taxpayers foot the bill for?

Kavanagh has NO credibility and has turned Appropriations into a piggy bank for his cronies. Need more people for the private prison corporations, his cronies... criminalize everything, including God's children.

Someone voted for these knuckleheads, a lot of someone. Is Kavanagh worse than Seel, Burges, Smith, or Chester Crandall? Is beheading worse than drawn and quartered, electrocution, hanging or a firing squad? Same difference.

Shurf Joe enforces the " Potty Papers, Please" law, saving the world like he did when he saved the world from taco shop vendors, car washers, and landscapers. Do you realize that the Temple Murders are still haunting Arizona as long as Shurf Joe is in office? Tom Agnos was a saint compared to the two Fountain Hills baboons.

Potty Papers Please. And further please send that buffoon, Kavanagh, back to New York.

Hopefully the recall on Kavanagh will FLUSH this nut, like was done to his neo-nazi buddy, Pearce!

I think he is damaged from the incident where he was attacked by those three drag queens in the bathroom of grham central station back in the 80's.

they did a toilet swirley and made him eat urinal cakes.

Hope he's not counting on my tourist dollars to fund this crusade. I've gone to Arizona on vacation since the '70s, but I won't be back until you people quit electing these morons.

A former NY cop shouldn't be setting public policy and handling Appropriations. Slightly biased? Wake up people. This IS the public's problem.

@ReggieVV ... right. Kavanagh makes arpaio's laws. The "rule of law", "the rule of law".... How about the U.S. Constitution, stooges?
