Ald. Simpson: Objection to Liquor License Has Nothing to do With Race

Alderman Gail Simpson denies that racism played any role in her opposition to the liquor license for the Scandals bar and restaurant.


Supporters of Scandals have suggested that her objection may stem from the fact that the owner is white.


They note that Simpson did not oppose a black-owned bar that opened at that same location just three years ago.


Simpson says she does not recall that specific request, but insists that her only motivation was concern over the number of liquor establishments in her ward.
