Scandal hits Miss Wheelchair America!

In fact, it hit her so hard she leapt out of her chair and was temporarily cured of her ailments. Miss Wheelchair Wisconsin was stripped of her crown earlier this month after photos of her standing up were leaked to the press. Ms Janeal Lee, who is able to stand and walk short distances, was “asked to step down” (I thought her “stepping” was the problem, actually!) as she did not meet the eligibility criteria and therefore would not be able to compete for the national title of Miss Wheelchair America.

According to their website http://www.mswheelchairamerica.org/ the eligibility criteria clearly states that contestants must “utilise a wheelchair for daily mobility” but provides no further clarification. If I were Ms Lee, I think I’d consider it rather a lucky escape from a competition who crowned Juliette Rizzo as Miss Wheelchair America 2005. “In her private life, Juliette is an avid collector of Pez dispensers, which she uses to decorate her holiday tree!”

Unfortunately, I don’t make this stuff up!

Man, don't knock the pez! I got a lovely miss kitty type pez dispenser for christmas 03 - speaking of, where did I put it..

She's quite cute, Juliette, I want to see a pic of the one who was asked to step down!

who did that website? It's extremely non picture friendly for a miss america type contest.

I think donald trump needs to add this to one of his events and do a more bling website
