Charlotte City Council did not bite Monday night on state legislative leaders' offer over House Bill 2. State lawmakers said  if council rescinded protections for LGBT people passed early this year, the General Assembly would repeal the bill.  

"It wasn't an offer it was a demand and bullying," says council member Lawana Mayfield. "We teach our children that bullying is wrong, but yet as adults and as political figures to use bullying sends a very mixed message across the state and across the nation."  

She spoke with WFAE's Marshall Terry Tuesday morning.
