High School Principal FIRED Over Sex With Guard, Professor and Parent

A High School principal has been fired after she was accused of having sex with a campus guard, an assistant professor, and a student’s parent.

Annie Schmutz Seifullah, 35, was relieved of her principal duties at Robert Wagner Secondary School of Arts and Technology in Long Island City on Thursday after she was accused of having sex there during school hours at various times with a variety people.

“We are appalled by these disturbing allegations and acted swiftly to remove the principal while the matter is under investigation,” a Department of Education spokesman said. “This type of alleged behavior is completely unacceptable for any DOE employee.” source

The accusations came from a student’s father who had been dating Seifullah since last year. That father, whose name hasn’t been released, came forward because he felt she “played me for a fool” and cheated on him: “Ms. Seifullah clearly used her power and position as principal to…seek several sexual partners at her school,” he told the Post.

Among other things, the father gave investigators three DOE laptops he obtained while living with Seifullah; they allegedly contain multiple photos and videos of Seifullah engaging in sex acts. There was audio of Seifullah admitting she engaged in oral sex with an NYPD school-safety agent in the school security office, and with a visiting assistant principal in a book-storage room during school hours.

It seems she cheated on him with at least one of those two men, because the dad yelled at her on the tape, “You gave him [expletive deleted] while my child was in the building.”

ELMO Creator In Trouble With The Law

Kevin Clash, the puppeteer responsible for Sesame Street’s Tickle Me Elmo has been accused of having sex with a 16-year-old boy. The folks on the street released the following statement…

Sesame Workshop’s Statement Regarding Kevin Clash

In June of this year, Sesame Workshop received a communication from a then 23 year old man who alleged that he had a relationship beginning when he was 16 years old with Kevin Clash, a Sesame Workshop puppeteer who performs as Elmo.

We took the allegation very seriously and took immediate action. We met with the accuser twice and had repeated communications with him. We met with Kevin, who denied the accusation. We also conducted a thorough investigation and found the allegation of underage conduct to be unsubstantiated. Although this was a personal relationship unrelated to the workplace, our investigation did reveal that Kevin exercised poor judgment and violated company policy regarding internet usage and he was disciplined.

Kevin insists that the allegation of underage conduct is false and defamatory and he is taking actions to protect his reputation. We have granted him a leave of absence to do so.

Elmo is bigger than any one person and will continue to be an integral part of Sesame Street to engage, educate and inspire children around the world, as it has for 40 years.

Snooki May Be Engaged to the Wrong Daddy

Jersey Shore’s Snooki tweeted an official engagement picture, wearing her ring and posing with fiance Jionni LaValle.

Snooki Jionni ring Snooki May Be Engaged to the Wrong Daddy

It was only until Snooki announced her pregnancy, that LaValle asked her to marry him. Some are still speculating that the baby may not be his, as it could be housemates’ Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino’s or Vinny Guadagnino’s.

A pregnant Snooki is set to be back with the Jersey Shore cast this upcoming Season 6, but the show will be spun into a whole new direction, considering it used to portray Snooki as the ‘life of the party’.

With Mike reportedly just getting out of rehab for alcohol problems, Jersey Shore won’t exactly portray him as the fun party guy anymore either.

I think I will still watch the show at first, but might lose interest without seeing my favorites partying.

David Copperfield Issues Statement on Assault Charges After 2 Years

The following is a statement by Angelo Calfo and Patty Eakes, David Copperfield’s attorney:

Two years ago, false reports surfaced in the media that a Washington woman claimed she had been assaulted by David Copperfield. Now, this same woman has filed a lawsuit on this false, two-year old claim to get money. We had hoped to avoid responding to her allegations in public, but her filing of this lawsuit has forced us to do so, to respond to these false allegations and set the record straight.

This woman, who filed the lawsuit, has a history of lying. She has lied to law enforcement before and, as a result, had innocent people arrested based on a false accusation. She bragged to one of her closest friends that she could make up allegations against a guy to “take a guy down” if she wanted to. She said this before she even met Mr. Copperfield. Witness after witness who know her personally say she is incapable of telling the truth.

Her pattern of lying continues in this lawsuit. The facts are that there were more than twenty women and men on the island during her visit. The allegation that there was no one on the island to help her – even if she needed help – is preposterous. She met and talked with many people on the island, and spent hours with them on the beach, without Mr. Copperfield even present. Among the people she met was a female live-in island manager, who spent time with her on the island and told her that if she needed anything to just call. She never complained to anyone about her treatment, never showed any signs of distress and no one on the island saw her with scratches, bruises or any other signs of assault. That’s because nothing of the sort ever happened. Instead, she sun-tanned in her bikini listening to her IPod, jet-skied with island visitors, had playful conversations with guests, and swam on island beaches, day after day. She even had dinner with a group of island guests.

The notion that this woman was trapped on the island is absurd. There are telephones everywhere throughout the island that allow guests to call anyone in the world, including “911.” There is cellular phone coverage and even internet access on the island. She had access to jet skis and boats that she could have taken to the neighboring inhabited islands that are minutes away and not owned by Mr. Copperfield. She came to the island because she wanted to – no one lied to her – and she could have left the island on her own at any time.

This lawsuit is extortion for money, plain and simple. Unfortunately, false claims like this only hurt the women who really have been abused, women who really need our help.
