Alcohol Tax Could Cost Chicago Olympics?

According to an ad by the American Beverage Institute, they claim that Governor Quinn's potential alcohol tax could cost Chicago it's bid to host the 2016 Olympics:
"Having a vibrant restaurant and nightlife scene is an important component of Chicago's bid to be recognized as a world class city capable of hosting the Olympics," the ads declare. "If this alcohol tax goes through, Chicago will become a significantly less attractive candidate for the 2016 Olympics"
This is a pretty ridiculous statement...we highly doubt that the IOC will even consider something like this. Regardless about how you feel about the tax, one thing we're certain of is that this tax isn't going to cost Chicago the chance to host the 2016 games.
