VIDEO: Anti-HERO ad paid for by Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick campaign

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- In the second new ad, the anti-HERO group, Campaign for Houston, uses clips of an abc13 newscast in which Mayor Parker says "This just doesn't happen!" in reference to transgender women following girls women into the restroom for illegal purposes. The ad then highlights a 2012 case in which a transgender woman was ticketed for using the women's room at Parkland Hospital. The woman in question, Paula Witherspoon, is a registered sex offender for crimes committed against teenagers in 1990. At the time, Paula was Paul Witherspoon.
