Opponent of Gainesville’s “Bathroom Bill” Arrested For Bathroom Voyeurism

From the Gainesville Sun:

The CVS Pharmacy manager who allegedly admitted Friday to filming women in his store’s bathroom was an active participant in the 2008 charter amendment to “keep men out of women’s restrooms.”

Jonathan Matheny, 27, was charged with one count of video voyeurism after a customer told police she had discovered a cell phone equipped with a camera under a pile of tissues in the CVS bathroom at 125 S.W. 34th St.

Can you say projection? Maybe Mr. Matheny was afraid that transgender women would hone in his territory? No fear, Mr Matheny, no fear! While you have charges pending, no transgender woman has ever been convicted of the same crime. Why? We use restrooms to safely urinate and use cell phones to make phone calls. Fancy that.
