Associated Press – December 29, 2007:

A 6-year-old girl who won four tickets to a Hannah Montana concert with an essay falsely claiming her father died in Iraq isn’t going to the show after all.

The contest’s sponsor, a store chain named Club Libby Lu, withdrew the prize Saturday and awarded it to another contestant. It didn’t identify the new winner.

“We did the essay and that’s what we did to win. We did whatever we could do to win,” Ceballos said in an interview Friday with KDFW-TV of Dallas. “But when (Caulfield) asked me if this essay is true, I said `No, this essay is not true.'”

    “This is an amazing piece of news!”

    You must be new here. This wasn’t posted for the story.

  2. OvenMaster says:

    Sounds like this girl took a lesson from that “Survivor” asshat who lied about his grandmother dying.

  3. Improbus says:

    Another 20 years and a law degree and she will be ready for politics.

  4. Gary, the dangerous infidel says:

    I’ve notified Santa, and he agreed that the little girl should be put on his “lying little skank” list for a couple of years, but there’s not much we can do about the mother who hatched the conspiracy.

  5. Dugger says:

    I saw the letter on TV.

    What 6 year old is able to write with cursive script interspersed?

  6. George Jetson says:

    Given all the strange and aberrant behaviors our wonderful media loves to encourage, what’s the big surprise when we finally arrive at the old truth, “garbage in, garbage out.”

  7. Personality says:

    Blame the evil Disney corp. Damn them and their short skirts. Minnie started it!

  8. Not Telling! says:

    HEADLINE: “Girl lied that dad died in Iraq to get free Hannah Montana tickets!”

    First Quote: “A 6-year-old girl…isn’t going to the show after all…[because] contest’s sponsor, a store chain named Club Libby Lu, withdrew the prize”

    Common, I understand tabloid headlines, but this is taking it too far.

    It’s good to know the US kids have their priorities in line.

  10. Dan_Linder says:

    Guys, remember this is a six year old girl we’re talking about. I am highly suspect that this girl would come up with this at all. (Of course to think that many of the other entries by other six-year-olds were submitted un-aided is highly unlikely also…)

    Thankfully the media is placing the blame on the mother (rightfully). She’s the one that did all the lying. At best the kid just signed her name in crayon and put on the stamp.

    “We did anything that we had to do to win.”

    Sounds like a Texian – which she, by no coïncidence, IS. This, far, FAR more often than you would believe, is fundamentally how our future Lone Star socio- and psychopaths are created.

    Competition, not coöperation. Win, any way you can. What YOU want is the only thing that matters. Rules are for chumps.

    From six-y-o girls to the President, typical Texas egocentric, greedy, morals-and-ethics-free “values” at work.

    And some of you will still wonder why so many Texians end up on Death Row…

  13. BdgBill says:

    This isn’t about kids. This is about pshyco, wack job moms who are competing with other psycho moms to be the one who scored tickets.

    Only a shuttered “stay at home” mom would be naieve enough to think they could get away with such an outrageous lie in the Internet Age.

    it was only bad because she got caught. duh
