Bristol Palin may not have won Dancing with the Stars, but her longevity on the show and third place win was enough to cause some viewers to complain to the Federal Communications Commission, reports the The Smoking Gun.
“I … believe that the program was fixed by extreme supporters of the Tea Party and Radical Right-Wing,” wrote one viewer. “There is no disclaimer that it is a political show, and instead that is what it has become. It is tragic to say that it could have been fixed but I hope ABC’s ratings blow-up and go down in flames.”
“You need to investigate the fraudulent voting practice on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars,” another viewer complained.
A third viewer protested that DWTS judge Carrie Ann Inaba’s hugging of Bristol Palin was “unfair treatment” that “was a signal for GOP/Tea Party supporters of Sarah Palin to ‘stuff’ the vote for Bristol Palin.”
“My 96 year old Mother-in-Law can dance better than Ms. Palin,” continued the viewer. “I want my Government to protect me the viewer from deceptive practices.”
