Red Hen Restaurant Owner Resigns From Local Business Group

Stephanie Wilkinson, the Red Hen co-owner who kicked out White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and her family from the Virginia restaurant, is now stepping down from her leadership position with Main Street Lexington, a local group focused on promoting “economic viability.” It seems other members of the group didn’t think it “economically viable” to kick out a working mother and her family from a restaurant for nothing more than political disagreement.

Wilkinson’s social media history indicates she was a Hillary Clinton supporter and part of the “resist” movement – a movement which at times has openly advocated for violence against President Trump and his supporters.
