(USATODAY) — WEST CHESTER TOWNSHIP, Ohio — The chairman of West Chester Township’s Board of Zoning Appeals cleared his throat. He asked anyone leaving the January zoning meeting to do so quietly.
Melissa Warren stood up. She didn’t say a word. She didn’t have to. A woman in the back of the room spoke for her.
“Quietly?” the woman said. “No. Your appeals process is crap."

Warren attended the zoning meeting on Jan. 13 because she owns the Champagne Club in Fort Wayne, Ind.
"We like to call it a lifestyle club," she told police conducting a background check on her in October. "But it is also known as a swingers club."
