Iowa restaurant accused of charging higher cover for Donald Trump voters

Donald Trump won the presidential election last Tuesday and one restaurant in Iowa reportedly wants his voters to pay up.

Stella, a casual eatery in Corridor, Iowa, admitted to charging customers different cover prices based on how they voted in the election.

On Saturday, customer Eric Stelter of Grand Rapids went to watch the second half of the Iowa Hawkeye game at the nearby restaurant. But as he approached the establishment, he saw a sign on the door that he didn't find too welcoming.

“As we got closer to the door, we noticed there was a sign on the door that said, ‘Yes, this is discrimination, but you voted for it,’" Stelter said. 

Stella was charging Hillary Clinton voters a $5 cover charge, while Trump supporters were being asked to fork over $10. Before letting customers into the restaurant, Stelter said an employee would ask them who they voted for.

An employee at the restaurant confirmed that they charged different prices for different customer-voters, FOX 28 reported.

News of the establishment’s unorthodox approach spread quickly. 

The restaurant’s Facebook page was taken down Tuesday and its Yelp rating absorbed a predictable backlash, Eater reported. Many recently added reviews were just one star, prompting Yelp to posted an "active cleanup alert" on the page.
