Chicago Republican Party to File Chick-fil-A Complaint

The Chicago Republican Party will be filing a complaint with the Illinois Department of Human Rights and Attorney General Lisa Madigan over the discriminatory action by Alderman Proco (Joe) Moreno against Chick-fil-A.

Alderman Moreno has stated publicly that he will block the company's move to open a restaurant in the 1st Ward because he disagrees with the owner's religious views. Alderman Moreno's actions constitute clear religious discrimination, and are barred by both Illinois and Federal law.

Alderman Moreno is attempting to use the hammer of goverment action to harm a person's business after that person expressed religious views with which Alderman Moreno disagrees. It's hard to imagine a clearer violation of First Amendment rights.
