Rep. Allen West visits Chicago 'to try to open up a Chick-fil-A franchise'

Representative Allen West is back in the spotlight for making comments about the ongoing Chick-fil-A controversy. West recently spoke out in support of the fast-food restaurant earlier this month during an interview. His recent comments in Chicago follow an announcement from the city’s mayor Rahm Emanuel stating that he is not in favor of the anti-gay marriage views of Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy. The Huffington Post reports:

Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) visited Chicago on Monday and took the opportunity to re-inject himself into an ongoing debate over Chick-fil-A and the fast food chain president’s comments about gay marriage.

“I had to come up from down South because I wanted to try to open up a Chick-fil-A franchise here in Chicago,” West said in an interview with CNBC’s Rick Santelli from the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade.

His office later told Politicker that he was only “joking” about looking into opening a Chick-fil-A franchise, but the implications of his comments were clear nonetheless.
