"Felony Franks" leaves a bad taste

Some Chicago officials don't like the idea of a "misdemeanor wiener."

Jim Andrews wants to open a hot dog stand and hire ex-cons to serve his "Felony Franks."

Alderman Bob Fioretti has a beef with the plans.

While he doesn't have a problem with a new hot dog stand, the alderman says the crime theme is in bad taste.

He notes his ward has a major crime problem.

But businessman Andrews says the names like "burglar beef" are meant to ease some of the stigma associated with his former convict employees.
