Anti-Abortion group accuses county fair of discrimination

Posted: Updated:
WALWORTH COUNTY (WKOW) -- An anti-abortion group is accusing the Walworth County Fair Foundation of discrimination for denying its request for a booth at this summer's fair. Peter's Net, which promotes Catholic teachings, is accusing the fair of not letting them return to this year because of their religious and anti-abortion views.

The group's attorney sent a letter to the fair foundation seeking a response by Wednesday.

Peter's Net had a booth at last year's fair, but the letter says fair officials wouldn't let the group return this year, in part because it received at least one complaint.

The group says the fair officials' actions constitute "unlawful discrimination."

Fair spokeswoman Susan Pruessing says the foundation received the letter Tuesday and had no immediate comment.
