ACLU may be siding with Chick-fil-A in Buffalo airport dispute

News

Chick-fil-A has found itself an unlikely ally in the dispute over a location at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport.

The New York Chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) may be siding with the restaurant.

After it was announced that Chick-fil-A might be part of the new concessions at the Buffalo airport, State Assemblyman Sean Ryan tweeted his criticism, due to the chicken chain’s owner’s support of causes opposing gay marriage.

A short time later, he tweeted that Chick-fil-A was no longer coming to the airport.

The Hill says an official for the New York affiliate of the ACLU was quoted as saying “The first amendment does not permit the NFTA to base its contracting decisions on the political views of a vendor.”
