Afraid the “deplorables” might register to vote.

As you likely recall,  we’ve been covering the the progressive left’s problem with Chick-fil-A dating back several years.  To celebrate Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, we requested and then published reader Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day photos.  Good times.

In Florida, Chick-fil-A is spear-heading a voter registration drive that has local Democrats fuming.

The Tampa Bay Times reports:

The Stonewall Democrats of Pinellas County are crying foul over Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark’s decision to hold voter registration drives at nine Chick-fil-A locations. Chick-fil-A, the fast-food chain known for putting faith ahead of profits, supports conservative causes.

Susan McGrath, leader of the Stonewall Democrats and head of the Pinellas Democratic Party, said the decision to use Chick-fil-A would be similar to a Democratic supervisor of elections holding the event at Planned Parenthood.

McGrath said the group supports the effort to register more voters, But she called the move partisan to hold the event at Chick-fil-A and said it might be more transparent to hold the voter drives at the Republican Party headquarters.

“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,” McGrath wrote to Clark.

“would be similar to a Democratic supervisor of elections holding the event at Planned Parenthood”

Because killing chickens is exactly the same as killing babies. And both are purely political acts.

I love this, but have to think most folks who eat at Chik-fil-A are already registered. OTHO, anything that drives the left nuts is fine with me. (I was pleased to see the the photo I uploaded on Appreciation Day was still there at the link!)

Of course, Planned Parenthood DOES conduct voter registration efforts, not merely as the physical location of such, but at their own initiative.
