Never mind that the organizations that support Dems do this all the time. The double standard is ridiculous.
When Planned Parenthood or ACORN decides to conduct a voter-registration drive, Dems love it. When a Christian corporation like Chick-fil-A is involved, however, they couldn’t be more appalled.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, the Stonewall Democrats of Pinellas County, a gay pressure group, have lodged a public protest over the decision of Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark’s decision to hold voter registration drives at nine Chick-fil-A locations around the Florida county.
“While some Democrats may occasionally dine at Chick-fil-A (and perhaps even members of the LGBT community), the coordination of Pinellas voter registration activities with this right-leaning business very clearly conveys that your office is targeting Republican-leaning voters,” Stonewall Democrats leader Susan McGrath said in a letter.
Yes, Dems are that afraid of Donald Trump winning in a swing state.
Jason Latimer, Clark’s spokesman, pointed out that 350 such drives would be held this year, almost all of them not at Chick-fil-A. That wasn’t good enough to appease McGrath, though.
Apparently, just because a restaurant has a connection with religion, a voter registration drive shouldn’t be hosted there. If this were held at, say, a community organizing center or an Abercrombie & Fitch store, it wouldn’t be an issue. However, you can see how those would skew towards demographics that tend to support Democrats.
