Catholic group claims discrimination by Walworth County Fair

WALWORTH COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A Catholic pro-life group says it's being discriminated against, after its request to have a booth at the Walworth County Fair was turned down.

Peter's Net had a booth at last year's fair -- and the Fair's foundation says it won't let the group return because it received at least one complaint from a year ago.

A spokeswoman for the fair had no immediate comment.

The group has asked fair officials for a more detailed explanation by Wednesday.

Peter's Net says it promotes Catholic teachings -- and it's accusing the fair of not letting them return because of its opposition to abortion. The group says the fair is engaging in, "unlawful discrimination."
