No punishment is too severe for this woman. If you’re gonna lie about something, don’t lie about a soldier’s death in Iraq.
GARLAND, Texas (AP) — An essay that won a 6-year-old girl four tickets to a Hannah Montana concert began with the powerful line: “My daddy died this year in Iraq.”
While gripping, it wasn’t true — and now the girl may lose her tickets after her mom acknowledged to contest organizers it was all a lie.
The saga began Friday with company officials surprising the girl at a Club Libby Lu at a mall in suburban Garland, northeast of Dallas. The girl won a makeover that included a blonde Hannah Montana wig, as well as the grand prize: airfare for four to Albany, New York, and four tickets to the sold-out Hannah Montana concert on January 9.
The mother had told company officials that the girl’s father died April 17 in a roadside bombing in Iraq, company spokeswoman Robyn Caulfield said.
“We did the essay and that’s what we did to win,” Priscilla Ceballos, the mother, said in an interview with Dallas TV station KDFW. “We did whatever we could do to win.” (H/T – CNN)
And that, Priscilla is exactly why you are the biggest scumbag in American history. The sponsor is threatening to revoke the tickets. Considering? The tickets should have already been revoked! I realize that it’s not the girl’s fault that her mother is a despicable, disgusting, slob – who appears to have no remorse, by the way – but the girl should not be rewarded for a lie.
It’s a damned shame the Garland Police can’t charge Ceballos with a crime. They execute people all the time in Texas, and I can think of no person more deserving.
