Bakery That Didn’t Serve Gays Shuts

The owners of a Gresham, Ore., bakery who refused to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple are shuttering their storefront, reports Oregon's KPTV. But the owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa contend they aren't going out of business, just scaling down to operate out of the owner's home. Owner Melissa Klein told KPTV her business has suffered since her shop made national headlines earlier this year when Klein's husband and shop co-owner, Aaron Klein, refused to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple/SheWired. More here.

Question: Has their been any complaints filed in Coeur d'Alene since the antidiscrimination ordinance took affect earlier this summer?
