Bengals season ticket holders seek government bailout
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Lobbyists representing disappointed Bengals season ticket holders approached Congress this week seeking a bailout package. The proposed plan is intended to provide relief to the sector of the economy comprised of people who were misled into believing they were purchasing tickets to legitimate NFL events.
Lobbyist Gerald Williams said, "These people are hurting. They paid a lot of money for tickets and seat licenses. Many of them also paid for luxury boxes. The government has a responsibility to bail out this naive and desperate group of consumers."
Other consumer groups seeking similar bailout packages include Detroit Lions season ticket holders, investors in the Purple People Bridge, people who saw the movie Nights in Rodanthe starring Richard Gere, and people who made financial contributions to John McCain's presidential campaign.
