Pat McCrory hoodwinked North Carolina voters into electing him governor and is lying to them about why he passed the state's polarizing "bathroom bill," Connecticut Gov. Dan Malloy has charged.

"[McCrory has] become a different guy than the person he pretended to be when he ran for governor," Malloy told North Carolina Democrats on Thursday, The Charlotte Observer reports.

"[He] would have pretended to be a choirboy if it would help him get elected.

"Enough people thought he was somebody else that they were willing to turn over their great state. And how did he return the favor? HB2."

Malloy, who chairs the Democratic Governors Association, was referring to the bill which forces transgender people to use bathrooms corresponding with the sex on their birth certificate, not which sex they identify with.

The bill, signed into law by McCrory this year, has cost the state hundreds of millions of dollars in lost revenue from businesses that say they can't invest in a discriminatory state.

Top music acts such as Bruce Springsteen, Ringo Starr, Demi Lovato, Nick Jonas and Pearl Jam have canceled concerts.

And in a huge slap at the state, the NBA yanked next year's All-Star game from North Carolina. McCrory ripped the NBA's move, invoking a vulgar term for animal excrement to describe it.

In his address to Tar Heel State Democrats in a hotel near the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Malloy said McCrory must be ousted by Attorney General Roy Cooper, a Democrat who's challenging him and would repeal House Bill 2.

Malloy doesn't buy McCrory's insistence that the bill is about privacy, not discrimination.

"Your governor is telling fibs, and you know it and I know it," Malloy said. "This is about discrimination. This is something that we've got to stand up and push back on."
