The Hill reports:
A legal group founded by ex-Trump aide Stephen Miller on Thursday filed another lawsuit accusing the Biden administration of racial discrimination in the distribution of COVID-19 relief funds, this time for money designated for restaurant owners.
Thursday’s lawsuit from America First Legal (AFL) specifically takes issue with the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) handling of the $28.6 billion in the Restaurant Revitalization Fund within President Biden’s American Rescue Plan package passed by Congress.
Read the full article. This is second such lawsuit by Miller’s group. Last month they sued the Biden administration on behalf of Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller, alleging discrimination against white farmers in the distribution of grants. Miller, you may recall, was exposed during the Trump administration for feeding white supremacist articles to Breitbart.
The complaint argues that the Restaurant Revitalization Fund discriminates by specifying that during the first 21 days of the program the SBA administrator must “‘prioritize awarding grants’ to businesses owned by women and racial minorities.” https://t.co/mMPgvecBt7
