A representative of the Lexington-based Family Foundation says he was turned away from a meeting to discuss the fate of the Chick-fil-A restaurant chain on the University of Louisville campus. Policy analyst Andrew Walker says he was told the meeting was private and his presence would not be allowed. The group has criticized recent suggestions that the University of Louisville could expel a business from its campus because a company executive spoke against gay marriage.
Some political observers are wondering if the push to add support for gay marriage to the national Democratic platform this year will affect elected officials in Kentucky. Following President Barack Obama's recent statement in support of same-sex marriage, political observers expect the party to change the platform at this year's Democratic convention.
