Health officials halt sausage party outside Pence’s Missouri event

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – A radio station that was planning a “Sausage Party” across the street from the Kansas City hotel where Vice President Mike Pence was speaking to protest his position on LGBTQ issues wasn’t able to provide the hot dogs it promised.

The Kansas City Star reports that the Kansas City Health Department informed Radio station 96.5 The Buzz on Wednesday morning that it lacked the required permits. The station elected to cancel the free hot dogs rather than file for the permits. About 100 protesters showed up at Pence’s event at the Kansas City, Missouri, Downtown Marriott to raise money for Kansas Congressman Kevin Yoder.

Pence has a history of opposing LGBTQ rights, including supporting a 2006 constitutional amendment that would’ve defined marriage as between a man and a woman.
