Apparently, all it takes for AG Tom Corbett to finish an investigation is 700 angry Pennsylvanians and a teen idol. Today, Corbett reached a settlement with the internet company that runs the Miley Cyrus/ Hannah Montana fan club.
Corbett says more than 700 Pennsylvanians complained they didn't get early access to Hannah Montana concert tickets through Cyrus' Mileyworld.com Web site when they paid a $29.95 yearly membership fee. Many fans were shut out of a sold-out concert at Pittsburgh's Mellon Arena in January 2008.
Attorneys for Interactive Marketing Inc. of Nashville, Tenn. approved the deal. The company runs the Web site but doesn't admit wrongdoing in the settlement filed in Pittsburgh.
The company must also pay a $20,000 penalty and post a Web site notice that fan club memberships don't guarantee ticket access.
Mark this down as another huge victory for Corbett. After all, he diverted his attention from a case (Bonusgate) that impacts every Pennsylvanian in order to make things right with 700. And just to think, he got everyone four additional months! What a deal!
Rumor has it, Corbett made this priority one after he signed up for Mileyworld and was one of the 700 Pennsylvanians denied the opportunity to buy tickets to Cyrus' Pittsburgh concert.
When will this BS stop?
