Scum of the Earth!

PHILADELPHIA — A jury convicted Msgr. William J. Lynn of child endangerment Friday, finding that as the Archdiocese of Philadelphia secretary for clergy, he ignored credible warning signs about a priest who later sexually assaulted a 10-year-old altar boy. The verdict, after a three-month trial, marked the first time since the clergy sex-abuse scandal erupted a decade ago that a Catholic Church supervisor has been found criminally liable for child-sex crimes by a priest. Common Pleas Court Judge M. Teresa Sarmina immediately revoked Lynn’s bail, and deputy sheriffs escorted the white-haired monsignor to a holding cell. Lynn faces up to seven years in prison, and prosecutors vowed to seek a term near the maximum.

Supporters of Weberman should consider: What teenage girl in her right mind would possibly put herself through such a humiliating and horrendous ordeal, exposing herself and her family to vitriolic defamation and personal threats - unless the accusations she's making are true and she and her family felt they had no other choice but to come forward?

In any case, in a month's time Weberman will have his day in court, and we hope that justice and truth will prevail.

Steven I. Weiss is capable sometimes of doing good. He outed Republican appointee Yossi Gestetner to NY1 who questioned NY GOP Chairman Cox. In less than 30 minutes that Cox was informed of Gestetner's history, Gestetner resigned.

Gestetner is a supporter of Neturei Karta. He is a supporter of the Skverrer terrorism. He is a supporter of Weberman's molestation.

After beating SIW to a pulp, and chasing him off the blogosphere....He actually came to his senses and we are on ok terms now - at least from my POV.

This is of serious concern. While the BMG roshei yeshiva initially supported Yossi Kolko, they withdrew their support of him when he stopped cooperating the beis din and were then supportive of informing law enforcement about him.

Avraham Herskowitz of 611 Monmouth Ave in Lakewood (owner of Mid State Moving & Trucking) took an old letter of support from the roshei yeshiva to misrepresent as part of his fundraising efforts for the Kolko legal defense fund. His first poster had his contact info only.

The new poster also claims to have support from Artscroll mechaber & Lakewood posek R' Simcha Bunim Cohen. It would be shocking if R' Simcha Bunim is actually part of this nefarious endeavor as he is the grandson of R' Avigdor Miller who fought so hard against the molesting of Yossi Kolko's uncle Yudi.

If you heard me tell my story, then you know that regardless of how you interpret a grown man groping the behind of a teen age boy, there have been many more than one victim.

In 2006, I went to the Yeshiva with my allegations, another person did so as well. And I also told the hanhalla of a third person and they admitted to me about knowing of a 4th. Victim #3 was indeed underage, making Eisemann guilty of child sexual abuse (unless you hold like Rav Sheinberg that its ok as long as there is no penetration).

There are more who have approached me since then either directly or through a therapist.

The hanhalla never questioned or doubted us because they already knew it was true, but asked us to give testimony to Rabbi Hopfer. Rabbi Hopfer then confronted Rabbi Eisemann who confessed, just as he had confessed twenty five years ago to Rabbi Tendler who was the head of the mechina.

Rabbi Hopfer "paskened" that Eiseman should "retire" and should leave the campus. We were told that he "might" go to therapy, and that he would be monitored. In the end they allowed him to stay on Yeshiva Lane because Rabbi Hopfer said that it had "upset the rebbetzin to have to move."

Sheftel Neuberger and Berel Weisbord came to New York to "thank us" for giving them information about our abuse, but made it clear that they were not going to apologize, nor did they feel any need to help us with our requests. The number one request was to publicize the danger that this hypocritical "talmid chochom" represents to young men and boys everywhere.

Our request was denied. Rabbi Hopfer told me he was concerned that if it became public knowledge, that all of the people Eisemann had "made frum" would be disillusioned and go off the derech. Rabbi Ahron Feldman (Rosh Hayeshiva and Agudah Moetzes member)went one further and told my friend that for victims to publicize his abuse, it would be just as abusive as what he had done. He also said that he knows for a fact that Eisemann has done Teshuva and no longer has the Yetzer Hara.

If you don't believe me call Rabbi Hopfer and the Neubergers. Call Eisemann himself. If any of them deny any part of what I wrote, come back here and tell me, what they deny. Since I have gone public with the story, I have always wondered what they are telling people. I assume that most frum people in Baltimore don't care enough or are intimidated enough by the "Daas Torah" in town to be asking many questions. For example, can you imagine that the Yeshiva put up Mattis Weinberg to say a hesped for his mother? If he had become Jews for Jesus, or even a reform rabbi, they would never ever have allowed it. But the fact that he was run out of the country by Elya Svei for molesting boys, and has since been fired by another Yeshiva in Israel for the same thing, does not disturb the Yeshiva quite as much.

This attitude fits in very well with the Agudas Yisroel's approach of covering up and protecting molesters at all costs.

Rabbi Eidensohn, thank you in the name of all the abused children and suffering adults, girls raped by their fathers, boys sodomized by their rabbis, adults suffering from Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, substance abuse, depression, sexual dysfunction, and even the suicides that I work with in my practice, and for all of Klal Yisroel.

Keep up the good work. M'chayil El Chayil.

When is the next sefer coming out?

What's your take on the Yossi Kolko legal defense fund? I thought the only ones still supporting him are Belsky and that moron son of Rabbi Luban, an old Philly talmid who is rov in Highland Park, NJ, as well as a major figure at the OU. Luban's son was arrested for witness tampering & harassment but got off real easy as if Charlie Hynes was the DA in NJ too.

Jerry Seinfeld said...

Remember the final 2 hour episode of Seinfeld? The Black lawyer who was a parody of Johnny Cochrane made an argument similar to this


A defense lawyer for Rabbi Joel Kolko insisted yesterday that his client did no wrong when he had an up-close encounter near his Brooklyn home with a 13-year-old boy he was barred from contacting.

“Is there anything in that order that directs Mr. Kolko to turn and run in the opposite direction if he sees [the alleged victim]?” lawyer Jeffrey Schwartz asked a state court clerk who was testifying about the order of protection.

Yudi's cousin Jed should also look into the percentage of bungalow colonies like Regency. I can't do a survey on everything!


This month cities all across the world are partaking in Gay Pride celebrations. Jed Kolko, the chief economist at Trulia, takes a look at the neighborhoods in the U.S. with the largest gay communities ("gayborhoods").

Using 2010 U.S. Census data, which lists 646,000 same-sex households, he calculated the neighborhoods with the largest percentage of same-sex male couples

Vos Zugt UOJ:

I have not been following the Yossi Kolko case recently. He should buy the best defense team he can; the last I heard, the prosecutors have a rock solid case.

That does not mean I'm going to contribute to his defense fund.

Bungalow Putz Neuhoff & Jed Kolko,

I nominate Luxor Estates!

Shelly Silver's friend Willy Rapfogel from Met Council on Jewish Poverty may have blown the org's money with Ezra Merkin & Madoff. I thought it was illegal for charities to put their money in high speculative investments?
