(Ben Yakas) Everyone's favorite Nazi-sympathizing Times Square costumed character has been sentenced to one year in jail for a failed plot to extort the Girl Scouts. Anti-Semitic Elmo—a.k.a. Adam Sandler, who is really named Dan Sandler—was arrested in June for trying to extort $2 million from the Girls Scouts by threatening crazy allegations, plus stalking and harassing a Girl Scouts employee. “I accept the fact I committed a crime, but I’m not in anyway sorry to the Girl Scouts organization,” he told the court at sentencing.
Sandler had been employed by the Girls Scouts as a temp for a computer programming project from 2007-2008. After he was arrested in June 2012 for harassing people and going on rants about Jews, he started sending "alarming" and "bizarre" emails to a Girl Scouts supervisor (including nude photos). Among other things, he allegedly 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."
Sandler justified his actions with statements he made in court calling the group “very corrupt” for working with drug companies “to promote off-label marketing of products.”
