Boulder County Puts “Little Liz” Out of Work

Boulder County bureaucrat Carrie Haverfield thinks there’s an “ick factor” to carnival goers having their photos taken with “Little Liz,” “a 29-inch-tall woman from Haiti,” so the county shut down the sideshow, the Longmont Times-Call reports (hat tip to Complete Colorado). As fair coordinator Laura Boldt told the paper, the move puts Liz “out of work and unable to pay any medical or living expenses for those three days.” Apparently Boulder hates little people and wants them to be poor. But why is this even a political issue? “The county owns the fairgrounds,” the Times-Call notes. How about we get government out of the entertainment business? (Although obviously Boulder bureaucrats would make excellent clowns.)
