Elmos, behave. On Wednesday, Dan Sandler, previously known as the Elmo performer who was arrested for yelling anti-Semitic slurs in New York last year, was arraigned on charges of extortion and stalking. Sandler reportedly sent harassing emails to Girl Scouts of the USA supervisors, threatening to allege sexual abuse if they didn't pay him $2 million. District Attorney Cy Vance said the former Elmo performer-turned-criminal was attempting to use his "widely publicized criminal history" to steal money from the Girl Scouts. Sandler had worked for girls' organization in 2007 as a computer programmer.
