Scandals Plans Moves Forward Against Alderman Simpson's No Vote


A new east-side bar and restaurant is going forward… over the objections of the alderman for that ward.

 

The Springfield City Council voted 7-1 Wednesday to approve a liquor license for Scandals.

 

The former downtown bar will serve both alcohol and food at its new location on South 11th.

 

The only “no” vote was cast by Alderman Gail Simpson, who just a week earlier had persuaded aldermen to keep the liquor license on hold.

 

Supporters of Scandals accused Simpson of opposing the business because of its reputation as a gay bar, but Simpson denies that and says she was only opposed because she doesn’t think her ward needs another liquor establishment.
