Skip to comments.Students sue for inaugural refunds
Posted on 05/14/2009 2:03:46 PM PDT by smokingfrog
A class-action lawsuit was filed in federal court Wednesday on behalf of more than 15,000 students who paid thousands to attend Barack Obama's presidential inauguration but reportedly were left out in the cold.
The lawsuit filed in Washington says Vienna, Va.-based Envision EMI promised middle school, high school and college students across the country special access to the inauguration, parade and a black-tie inaugural ball Jan. 20.
The lawsuit says that once the students got to Washington, they had no tickets for the inauguration or parade, and the balls they attended were not official events connected to the inauguration.
Envision, a for-profit company that reportedly brought in $40 million from the inaugural sales, has said it would refund students $1 million. But the lawsuit says that would only reimburse each attendee about $65. The students were charged $2,380 to $2,620 and also had to pay for travel to Washington, formal wear for the ball and in some cases extra meals not included in the base cost.

Not surprising, ripping people off is usually what democRATS do anyway.
What did the idiot think a "ball" is?
HAD TO? They did not have to do anything!
Well, Obama supporters are idiots.
It’s easy to steal money from idiots.
I am thinking about Michelle Obama line of ass-hiding girdles.

They better be made of Adamantium.
Nelson points his finger and says....
I am sure that the president of this fine upstanding company will be punished. After all, President Obama is bound and determined to increase taxes on the rich and surely he will get caught in that net. Crime and Punishment all neatly wrapped up.
Nedra Pickler wrote this? I’m stunned. She’s was writing pro-Obama propaganda for AP all throughout the presidential campaign. When did she jump the fence and start writing for the Times?
She still writes for AP.
