The backlash from Lance Armstrong's cheating confession keeps coming!
The wax figures of Armstrong located at Madame Tussauds in Hollywood and the museum at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco have been altered to reflect the athlete's new status as a disqualified cyclist who was stripped of his seven world titles.
No word on whether the figures have been remolded to hang their heads in shame...
ABC News reported yesterday, (February 5th) that federal investigators are engaged in an active criminal investigation of disgraced former cyclist Lance Armstrong, in the wake of his confession to Oprah Winfrey of doping during his career. That contradicts what was said earlier in the day by the U.S. Attorney for Southern California, Andre Birotte, who spent nearly two years investigating Armstrong only to suddenly drop the case a year ago despite agents reportedly having recommended an indictment. Birotte said when questioned about any action now that Armstrong has confessed, "We made a decision on that case, I believe, a little over a year ago. Obviously we've been well-aware of the statements that have been made by Mr. Armstrong and other media reports. That has not changed my view at this time." But ABC News cited what it described as a high level source as saying that the current criminal inquiry is being run out of another office and Birotte isn't involved, stating, "Birotte does not speak for the federal government as a whole." Investigators aren't concerned with the drug use itself, but for his behavior of allegedly threatening and interfering with potential witnesses to keep his secret.
