MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — There is a new effort to protect consumers from ticket bot scammers.

Many people have a rough time buying tickets for popular events because of online robot buying. A new law would prohibit the sale of any ticket that was obtained by going around security protocols.

The upcoming Prince tribute concert is an example of how scammers get the tickets before fans.

“Those scammers are like thieves in the temple. Or maybe, as I noted yesterday, instead of making doves cry they’re making fans cry,” Sen. Amy Klobuchar said. “Either way it is wrong.”

Klobuchar is one of the sponsors of the new law called Better Online Ticket Sales, or BOTS.

    Thanks Amy. We needed another law to curtail and prevent private enterprise in Minnesota. It is just awful that tickets to a private showing and celebration of a black junkie’s lifestyle were sold out before you got one. Thank god you provide airplane tickets free of charge to every third world malcontent, Islamic radical, criminal, and non-English speaking, unemployable welfare case that can point to Minnesota on a map; all who will vote for the Socialist Welfare Party with No-ID required, and as many times as they wish, the same day they get off the plane to accept their place here in Minnesota on the welfare roles.

      She’s working on those less than important issues. Her and Al Frankenstein sure do a good job wasting time.
