I must admit that the decision to call the cops on the

Jenna and Barbara was actually political. “One senior administration official”
told reporters that Chuy’s, the restaurant in question “is owned and operated by
Well, apparently not. According to this ABCNews.com article,
Michael Young, co-founder and president of Central Texas Chuy’s Inc. is actually
a relatively big ticket Republican donor.
