Screwed by the #SpiteHouse: Blue Ridge inn forced to throw out food after shutdown closure

The Pisgah Inn sits on federal land on the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina. When the government shut down, the inn was forced to close right in the middle of the fall foliage tourism season.

Federal workers are likely to be paid retroactively, but the Pisgah Inn is losing money. And now, several days into the shutdown, the kitchen is tossing out food.

Owner Bruce O’Connell had hoped to defy orders to close his inn

But the federal government had other ideas.

Protesters gathered over the weekend to demonstrate against the inn’s closure, but for now, it is unable to reopen for business.

O’Connell told Fox News he has hired a lawyer and is seeking a temporary restraining order.
