Here are copies of some of the documents involved in Pennsylvania Rep. Thomas Murt's inquiry into the vailidity of the permits issued for the children of Kate Gosselin to particpate in TLC's reality TV series "Kate Plus 8." Read my first report on the story posted yesterday here.
I have copies of the work permits for the Gosslin kids that Rep. Murt was able to obtain last week. I cannot reproduce them here, but the Gosselin children were issued permits for "public performances," which means theater work and plays -- not TV. The Gosselin kids are clearly not involved in "public performances." That is one key element of what Rep. Murt wants the attorney general to investigate.
The permits were made out to Figure 8 Films, the production company located in Carrboro, North Carolina. They were not made out to TLC. The permits cover April 20 to October 20, 2010, and they are only for "Kate Plus 8.".
Here is a copy of Murt's letter to the attorney general asking him to look into the permits under which the show is now being made.
Murt's letter continues:
Here is Murt's letter to the secretary of labor. This is the office that is being looked at in terms of how and why these permits were issued.
