Jefferson Parish Councilwoman Continues Attack On Fat City Business
Written by 

Despite a recommendation that the enforcement of a two-week suspension of City Bar's alcohol permit be suspended, Councilwoman Cynthia Lee-Sheng ignored the recommendation and pushed for an enforcement of the two-week suspension.

City Bar was cited in September during a sting for serving an underage female alcohol. The club has subsequently taken steps to change it's entrance policies to only allow 21+ year-old adults to enter. Councilwoman Lee-Sheng said that, while she applauded City Bar's efforts to improve it's policy, she disagreed with the suspension of enforcement and punishment of City Bar was necessary.

In September, after the sting, Councilwoman Lee-Sheng said that she would take steps to permanently revoke City Bar's alcohol permit. The Councilwoman also championed a controversial rezoning ordinance to drastically curtail the hours that alcohol can be sold at Fat City bars, restaurants and convenience stores. Several businesses have filed Federal lawsuits challenging the rezoning ordinance and at least one business has already closed as a direct result of the rezoning. City Bar will appeal the Councilwoman's decision. The Council also approved Councilwoman Lee-Sheng's recommendation that the alcohol permit for Illusions Gentlemen's Club in Fat City be revoked.

quin hillyer health 5Have the conservative Freedom Caucus and advocacy organizations such as Freedom Works and Heritage Action "screwed the American people"?

That's the feeling expressed by at least one long-time conservative Republican, who, as millions of others were outraged by the destruction of the Obamacare "repeal" and replacement, on Friday.

comey sitThe GOP will likely claim that the bogus “ Assisted suicide counseling” will still be covered since Obamacare remains the law of the land. That’s good news for GOP legislators who planned on voting “yes” on its repeal. The rich, also, should be happy the old law remains because they have wounds that need tending after the mega tax breaks for them that were inserted in Trumpcare went the way of leeching. The failure to repeal, of course, is the Democrats fault. Trump said so, but he has reason to be happy, too. The health care debacle managed, if just for an hour, or two, to deflect attention away from Russia.
