This is not local, but it’s too good to pass up. Pamela Geller Oshry, arguably the craziest blogger in the country, may have something more threatening than Islamofascists to deal with. According to the New York Post, a car dealership where she’s listed as a co-owner was allegedly involved in some criminal behavior, but she denies being involved:
While probing the murder of car salesman Collin Thomas outside the showroom of Universal Auto World in Lawrence, L.I., in January, cops unraveled what they said was a massive scam at the dealership.
Employees at Universal allegedly stole and bought identities, then used the IDs to obtain at least $1.3 million in financing for fancy cars, court records show.
The luxury models, including Maseratis and Aston Martins, were allegedly sold or transferred under the table to individuals who didn’t want cars in their real names.
“The dealership knew what was going on,” an investigator said.
Oshry’s lawyer, William Petrillo, said his client “has not engaged in any criminal activity.”
His ex-wife, Pamela Geller, former associate publisher of the New York Observer and a conservative blogger, burst into tears when told her ex is under criminal investigation.
Although listed in business records as a Universal co-owner, she denied it. “I have nothing to do with this,” Geller said.
Sadly No! is making some popcorn.
