Penn Busts eBayer Without Auctioneer License

Jason Lee Miller

Some Pennsylvania bureaucrats have lost their minds, probably somewhere in the stack of papers their shuffling, after noticing how much money the state was losing by not enforcing an arcane law established long before anybody ever heard of eBay.

A Pennsylvania woman, eBay seller, and mother to an infant with a brain tumor is the government's target. That was sort of the whole point of finding an at-home form of income, which eBay provided for her. But the pencil-pushers, like the claims adjusters, aren't there to feel for anyone, they're there to make sure their reports look good to their superiors.
