    Chicago Being Sued by Felony Franks

    Though “home of the misdemeanor weiner” might seem like a good slogan, Jim Andrews’ hot dog shop Felony Franks has had some trouble with advertising.
    For more than two years, Andrews has been trying to get a sign erected outside his shop at 229 S. Western Ave., which hires ex-offenders in hopes of helping reintegrate them into society.
    And for more than two years, the city’s refused to grant him a permit for the sign.
    The sign, which would extend over public property, would likely bear the restaurant’s logo: a hot dog behind bars clad in a ball and chain. “Food so good, it’s criminal,” another of the restaurant’s slogans, would appear above the offending dog.
    Andrews brought the issue to federal court Tuesday, accusing the city of trampling on his First Amendment rights and requesting almost $300,000 in compensation for Andrews for lost revenue. The filing, which names the City of Chicago and several aldermen as defendants, says the store might have to close, which would adversely impact the ex-offenders it employs.
