Chicago 2016 Update: Mickey D’s sitting out hometown Olympic fundraising

2016 Update

According to a Wall Street Journalreport today, the McDonald’s Corp. isn’t supporting Chicago’s bid for the 2016 Olympic Games.

Why not? They can’t. Because of the company’s ties to the International Olympic Committee as an official sponsor of the Games.

As a result, McDonald’s can’t make any contribution to the Chicago 2016 bid.

How about giving up that special sauce formula…?
