Default Woman accused of targeting girl, 9, with Craigslist ad

Ah, yes. The kinder, gentler gender strikes again.
Someone should take this bitch out behind the barn and shoot her like the
rabid dog she is.


Woman accused of targeting girl, 9, with Craigslist ad
By Laurie Segall

(CNN) -- A Long Island, New York, social worker is facing two misdemeanor
charges after allegedly posting a sexually suggestive ad on Craigslist that
gave interested parties the home phone number of a 9-year-old girl.
The sexually suggestive ad allowed parties to get a number for a 9-year-old

According to prosecutors, Margery Tannenbaum posted the ad to get revenge
after an argument between her daughter and the girl, who attend the same
school in Hauppauge, New York.

On Thursday, Tannenbaum was arraigned on charges of aggravated harassment
and endangering the welfare of a minor. She pleaded not guilty and will
appear in court later this month.

Officials told CNN affiliate News 12 in Long Island that the Craigslist ad
read "I need a little affection... I'm blond, I'm cute and I'll be waiting."

Interested parties were directed to an e-mail address where they were given
the girl's name and home phone number. Callers were unaware they were trying
to reach a 9-year-old.

According to Suffolk County authorities, the mother of the girl intercepted
calls before her daughter answered. She said she received 22 calls in one
day, in all around 40 calls from various men who saw the ad, including some
seeking an escort service. After Craigslist was issued a subpoena,
authorities said they were able to track the account to Tannenbaum.

In court documents read aloud by Suffolk District Attorney Tom Spota, the
9-year-old's mother described one of the phone calls she received from a man
responding to the ad.

She said, "This is her mother. Can I help you?" The male replied, "Oh. Hot
lady lives with foxy mamma?"

The caller hung up after the girl's mother told him the "hot girl" he was
referring to was 9 years old.

When asked about the case, Tannenbaum's attorney, Tad Scharfenberg, said, "I
think this has been blown out of proportion to what the actual alleged act

He described Tannenbaum as "a well-loved woman by both family and friends,"
and said she was a classroom mom at her daughter's school.

"She's never been in any trouble for anything before," Scharfenberg said.
"She's just really upset by the whole thing. Her biggest concern has always
been that this not materially affect the victim or her child. She wants to
make sure the way it's being handled doesn't make that worse."

In an interview with News 12, the victim's mother said she was "horrified."

"It's scary to think that someone would take any issue and attack your
