...by saying that her father died in Iraq, when he actually wasn't even in the service:

(also see http://www.golden-road.net/index.php?topic=5051.0 )

This has gone too far -- people are doing ANYTHING just to get concert tickets. Appalling.

omg... that is awful. Great example the mom set, lying for her daughter like that (I doubt it was the little girl's idea). Freaking people need to realize that not getting Hannah Montana tix is not the end of the world.

I know what the mother did was horrible, but does anyone think the girl should still be allowed to attend? It was most likely not her idea, so I'd feel bad if she had to suffer for her mom's actions.

On the other hand, if she is allowed to attend, she'll most likely get the idea that, no matter if they caught them doing something wrong, or at least unethical, if it worked... "the end justifies the means", or so they say.

In my opinion, her tickets should be cancelled and both she and her mom should be banned from further participation in such contests. If the girl feels bad about that, she knows who's to blame.

This was not a mistake; this was a fraud and a very insensitive lie. Glad they took the tickets away.

Poor little girl but I guess if they did let her slide by then all the little kids would think that they could get away with something that horrible.

Exactly, Rebekah, that's the point. This is not really about the cost of the tickets; it's about the fact that the mom was teaching something really wrong to her daughter. Had they let them keep the tickets, they would set a very nasty precedent.

Personally I wouldn't like to be in the husband's shoes, if he's really around... figures, his own little wife "killed him in action" just to get some tickets; imagine what she could do to get something more valuable! Embarassť
