Don't fuck with the Girl Scouts. Dan Sandler, also known as Adam Sandler (not that Adam Sandler) or the "Anti-Semitic Elmo," was sentenced to a year in jail yesterday for trying to extort $2 million from the Girl Scouts.

Sandler, the definitive curmudgeon, remained a defiant scumbag during sentencing. According to the New York Times, he fancied himself some type of martyr. "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 the intersection," he reportedly told Judge Robert Stolz. "I am in no way sorry to the Girl Scouts organization, because I think they are a corrupt organization."

The 49-year-old Sandler pleaded guilty to second-degree attempted grand larceny and third-degree stalking last month; both charges had been reduced from more serious accusations to avoid trial. Sandler, who worked on a short-term computer programming project for the Girl Scouts in 2007 and 2008, allegedly harassed a supervisor through email and tried to Debo his way into their Manhattan headquarters. 

Sandler is infamously known for running a Cambodian porn site called Welcome to Rape Camp during the '90s and for his anti-Semitic episodes while dressed as Elmo in Times Square and Central Park last year. The year away from society is probably in everyone's best interest.
