World OutGames Scandal

In a scandal still unraveling, hundreds of athletes descended on Miami Beach from around the globe for the World OutGames only to find no one to greet them.  Less than 24 hours before the first event, the organizers made a startling announcement.  “It is with deep regret that due to financial burdens, World OutGames must cancel its sports programming and Opening and Closing Ceremony with the exception of soccer, aquatics and country western dance.”  You know what’s a financial burden?  Athletes spending thousands of dollars to travel to Miami Beach for nothing but some do-si-do-ing!  The news only got worse.  Seems the city of Miami Beach waived over $200K in permit fees and signed on as a sponsor.  With no Games taking place, the State Attorney’s Office opened a fraud investigation to look into “potential misappropriation of funds”.
