Dimple's Fine Imports suing City of Racine and Mayor Cory Mason in federal court

From The Journal

Dimple's owners Dimple and Denis Navratil twice applied for the city's emergency small business loans and grants for COVID-19 relief, but were denied because Denis participated in a rally in Madison on April 24 in opposition to the state's Safer at Home order. They are now suing the City of Racine and Mayor Cory Mason in federal court.

RACINE — The owners of the one of Main Street's longest standing businesses, Dimple's Fine Imports, are suing the City of Racine and Mayor Cory Mason in federal court.

The lawsuit, filed Monday, regards a controversy that began last year after Dimple's did not receive a Small Business Emergency Assistance grant from the city because Denis Navratil, who co-owns Dimple's with his wife Dimple Navratil, had attended a #ReopenWisconsin rally in Madison on April 24, 2020.

McMayor Cory 'Butterball' Mason,
During that rally, Denis Navratil was interviewed by a TV news station
and was filmed pulling down his mask to speak into a microphone
. However, Denis Navratil has continuously attested he was not part of "the crowd" but rather was observing the rally. The lawsuit refers to him "as a curious onlooker" and that he "wore a face covering and maintained social distancing throughout his time at the rally.

In two rounds of small business assistance grants the city offered to help businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, Dimple's requests — which could have led to a grant of up to $6,500 for the business that in 2020 was voted by readers of The Journal Times as best place to find unique gifts — were denied.

Fat Azz McMayor Cory "Butterball" Mason truly hates Ratcine and the Dumb Marks who decide to operate their Businesses there. He is simply out for himself - pay for play, and a shakedown Artist. The McMayor lives on the far outskirts of Town with the White Privileged Elites who rule Ratcine and is simply in charge of the wealth transfer scheme aka property taxation!

Wishing Dimples the best! Go Dimples - GO! And if you love life and your Business - GTFO of Ratcine!
