Ba Ha Ha's country

Posted by: Hammer / 12:56 PM

From CNN:
Ms. Wheelchair stripped of title for standing up

Ms. Wheelchair Wisconsin has been stripped of her title because pageant officials say she can stand -- and point to a newspaper picture as proof.

Janeal Lee, who has muscular dystrophy and uses a scooter, was snapped by The Post-Crescent newspaper standing among her high school math students.

"I've been made to feel as if I can't represent the disabled citizens of Wisconsin because I'm not disabled enough," Lee said Thursday.

Lee, 30, of Appleton, had planned to go to the national pageant with her younger sister, who also has muscular dystrophy and won the competition in Minnesota.

Students at Kaukauna High School, where Lee teaches, raised $1,000 for her trip to the national pageant.

Any local news on this, Ba Ha Ha?

Sorry Hammer. I've been away on vacation for the last week and haven't got wind of any of this.
