County prosecutors allege that Margery Tannenbaum, 40, retaliated by placing an ad on Craigslist, She placed the following in the "casual encounters" section on Craigslist:
"Looking for a good time?-w4m 21". "I need a little affection. I am blonde and very cute! I’ll be waiting."
A Long Island woman allegedly tried to get revenge on a 9-year-old girl who argued with her daughter by giving a throng of sex- seeking men the child's home phone number through a Craigslist ad.
Margery Tannenbaum, 40, already accused of harassment in the sick scheme, was slapped with even more serious charges at her arraignment yesterday -- and the young victim's mother spoke out for the first time.
"You don't do this to a child!" the woman said at her Hauppauge home. "What she did was horrific, and hopefully the courts will take care of it."
Tannenbaum, also of Hauppauge, allegedly launched the sick plot in February, after the victim -- whose name is being withheld by The Post -- had an argument with her daughter. The two girls are in the same elementary-school class.
Tannenbaum put the ad -- which read, "Looking for a good time?-w4m 21". "I need a little affection. I am blonde and very cute! I’ll be waiting." -- on Craigslist in a section known for escort-service ads, authorities said. It directed them to an e-mail address, "email@example.com."
That address was allegedly controlled by Tannenbaum. She then gave the would-be escort patrons the girl's home phone number, authorities allege.
Soon the phone was ringing off the hook with men looking for "dates." Her mom said she fielded at least 50 calls in two days before she changed her number.
She said she was shocked when she got the first call.
"She usually answers the phone, but I happened to be closer that time," she told The Post.
She said the caller started talking about her daughter's supposed physical attributes.
According to court documents, the first caller also said, "Hey, baby, is this . . .," using the girl's first name
When the mom answered, "This is her mother," the caller responded, "Oh, hot lady lives with foxy momma."
"I told him the hot lady you are referring to is 9 years old. He hung up," she said, according to the documents.
"It hard for a young girl to understand," she said. "It's hard for me to understand."
At yesterday's hearing, Tannenbaum was arraigned on charges of aggravated harassment and new charges of endangering the welfare of a child.
Tannenbaum is a social worker who lives with her businessman husband, Glenn, and their daughter.
Suffolk DA Tom Spota said his office will ask the state to review her social-work license and make her "undergo therapy."
As she left court, free on $500 bail, she faced the anger of the public.
"Shame! Shame on you!" a someone yelled.
