The costume wearing Times Square man known as the “Anti-Semitic Elmo” is looking at a year behind bars for a dastardly plot he had planned for the Girl Scouts.
Back in June he was arrested for attempting to extort large amounts of cash from the Girl Scouts by making outrageous allegations and stalking and harassing a scout employee. During his sentencing the man, named Dan Sandler showed no remorse for his crimes.
He told the court during his sentencing: “I accept the fact I committed a crime, but I’m not in anyway sorry to the Girl Scouts organization.”
The alleged harassment which ended with Sandler in jail started back in 2007 when he was employed by the Girl Scouts as a computer programmer. He was known for his racist rants about Jews running the world and being the root of all evil.
He also sent disturbing and bizarre emails to one of the Girl Scouts’ supervisors, include some naked selfies to boot. In one of the emails he wrote: “I will show up at Girl Scout functions and other places that parents and kids congregate and hold signs, connecting the Girl Scouts… with the Cambodian Rape Camp man.”
As if the Anti-Semitic Elmo rants about Jews weren’t bad enough Sandler even justified his actions by shouting out statements in court alleging that the Girl Scouts were corrupt and not to be trusted.
He said they work with drug companies to promote off-label marketing: :”This is not the case of someone in the back room of the office trying to embezzle money. This is more of a protest, like laying down in an intersection.”
Most New Yorkers, as well as the world at large, wish the Anti-Semitic Elmo a good year in jail. It would of course be very unfortunate if he ends up sharing a cell with an African-American, Mexican or even worse, a Jew. Perhaps if he does, he’ll learn the hard way to think differently about his hateful views.
