Ms. Wheelchair Wisconsin has to give back the goodies
Ms. Wheelchair Wisconsin, who'd been stripped of her title, has now been made to give back her prizes. Janeal Lee had been crowned in January. But the high school teacher later sparked an uproar in the Ms. Wheelchair America pageant after she was seen in a newspaper photograph standing up.
Pageant organizers say candidates for the crown have to "mostly be seen in the public" using their wheelchairs or scooters. Lee says she can walk up to 50 feet on a good day and stand while teaching.
Lee's prizes included a new scooter, jewelry, and a two-night stay at a Wisconsin resort. The Wisconsin runner-up has refused to accept the crown, so the second runner-up advances to the national pageant in July.
