It was just last week that Chicago Alderman Joe Moreno declared he had received assurances from Chick-fil-A that the restaurant chain would stop sending money to anti-gay groups like Focus on the Family and the Family Research Council. But by Friday, Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy told Mike Huckabee his company had “made no such concessions.”
Moreno says Cathy’s statement—and a tweet of a photo from a motorcycle ride benefiting an anti-gay-marriage group—have “muddled” the issue.
You don’t say?
“At the least, [that tweet] muddied the progress we had made with Chick-fil-A and, at the worst, contradicted the documents and promises Chick-fil-A made to me and the community earlier this month,” Moreno told CNN on Sunday. “I am simply asking Mr. Cathy to confirm statements and documents that HIS company executives provided to me. It’s pretty simple, Mr. Cathy. Do you acknowledge and support the policies that your executives outlined to me in writing or do you not? Yes or no?”
Oh, c’mon, Mr. Moreno—saying one thing and doing another should be familiar territory for a veteran politician like you.
