Joe Moreno Is As Confused By Chick-Fil-A’s Double-Talk As Everyone Else

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.

    Difference is that the majority of politicians are not dumb enough to put it down on paper. They might be caught on a video or misspeak in the media, but most of them do not sign legal documents then go directly against them.

    If Mr. Cathy isn’t careful, He’ll end up in the bottom of the chicago river! See how Chicago Politics really runs. Us chicagoan’s handle our problems a bit different here than down in the south..

    You clearly have no idea how things are done down South.
    We have small towns with the crime rate of Chicago.
