Your Bailout Dollars Hard at Work: Why Sell Cars When You Can Google Sex Tapes?
I caught a Chevrolet dealership in Georgia Googling sex tapes in the middle of the day (shame on you, dirty car boys) and decided to do a little digging. Hardy Chevrolet (insert juvenile joke here) has bailout ties but I'm sure their Googling habits have absolutely nothing to do with it, right?
HuffPo September 25, 2008:
Finally, there are 3,796 Chevrolet dealerships in the US (down from 4,063 a year ago), and yesterday the world's top-selling Chevy dealership group announced the closing of its 13 stores.
Dealer "Bill Heard Enterprises" has been a target of the Georgia Governor's Office of Consumer Affairs.
That office was seeking more than $50 million in penalties for deceptive marketing and alleged signature forgery, but that suit will fall through if the company declares bankruptcy.
The closing affects about 2,700 employees at stores in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Nevada, Tennessee and Texas. The group ranked No. 13 on the Automotive News list of the top 125 US dealership groups, with 2007 group revenue of $2.13 billion.
GM swore it would keep Bill Heard running and apparently it managed to do just that, giving the dealership plenty of time to look for sex tapes on the Internet and somehow end up on fringe financial blogs like this one. So glad our bailout money is going towards such useful activities.
Oh and they must have safe search turned off over there because yours truly tried to Bing the phrase and was cockblocked by her own laptop AT HOME. Dirty dirty, Hardy Chevrolet, here I thought I was bad.
Personally I don't want to see a Rielle Hunter/John Edwards sex tape but if anyone knows where I can get my hands on Mark Sanford's......
