Congress Gets Involved...
LOS ANGELES — AT&T, one of the biggest corporate sponsors of “American Idol,” might have influenced the outcome of this year’s competition by providing phones for free text-messaging services and lessons in casting blocks of votes at parties organized by fans of Kris Allen, the Arkansas singer who was the winner of the show last week.
There appear to have been no similar efforts to provide free texting services to supporters of Adam Lambert, who finished as the runner-up to Mr. Allen.
Finally, a potential ethics violation for Pelosi and Reid to sink their investigative teeth into. These have been pretty hard to come by these days, what with this being the most open, ethical and transparent Congress in history, and all.
