New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn sends letter to NYU president John Sexton tell him to cancel contract with Chick-Fil-A
New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn could be a candidate for Mayor of New York City once Nanny Bloomberg’s term expires. Seems like she would fit in perfectly there. Christine Quinn sent a letter (using official letterhead) urging New York University president John Sexton to sever the school’s contract with Chick-Fil-A because of their owner’s pro traditional marriage view. This is left wing fascism at it’s finest.
“As such I urge you to sever your relationship with the Chick‐fil‐A establishment that exists on your campus,” the speaker added.
The letter has drawn the ire from others on the council.
“She can write to someone as a council member, but if she states that she is writing as the Speaker it can only be on behalf of the entire council. She has to have the majority vote of the council, and I don’t recall voting on this matter,” City Councilman Peter Vallone (D-Queens) told FoxNews.com. “A stance on gay marriage is in no way a forum to prevent someone form running a business in a community.
“If we allow something like this, then the next letter might be concerning someone’s view on abortion.”
