Texas AG will investigate San Antonio’s banning of Chick-fil-A from airport

Fallout from the city of San Antonio’s decision to ban Chick-fil-A from the city’s airport is continuing as Texas attorney general Ken Paxton announced that he would investigate the city for First Amendment violations.

Fox News:

Paxton sent a letter to San Antonio City Council members and Mayor Ron Nirenberg, saying that he believed the first amendment was “under assault” over the city’s decision last week to exclude Chick-fil-A from a concessions contract with San Antonio International Airport because of what one council member called its “legacy of anti-LGBT behavior.”

“The Constitution’s protection of religious liberty is somehow even better than Chick-fil-A’s chicken.  Unfortunately, I have serious concerns that both are under assault at the San Antonio Airport,” the letter read.

Paxton directed the AG’s office to open an investigation into whether the city’s action violated state law.

He also sent a letter to Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao asking for the department to investigate whether the motion also violated federal laws.
