Okay, she didn’t quite say that. But, for the record, the woman accused of groping Santa Clause denies the allegations, claiming that she never ever sat on his lap:
“I don’t know what’s going on. I don’t know if he was confused, it was a false report,” Sandrama Lamy, 33, said this morning.
Lamy said she was window shopping at the mall Saturday with a friend when she decided to get a picture with a man playing Santa Claus.
A woman — apparently working with the mall Santa — made a comment after the picture was snapped, Lamy said.
“I did not sit on his lap. A woman there said ‘Be careful, that’s my husband.’ I said ‘What does that have to do with the picture?'” Lamy said. “That’s all I said, and I left.”…
“Why would I do this? There were so many people there. If he (Santa) needed a few extra bucks I would have given it to him,” Lamy said. “I’ve never been involved in a crime or anything. This is shocking to me.”
Selected amusing comments from readers of the Danbury News-Times, after the jump.
From two News-Times commenters:
“Something very fishy about this story. Maybe adults should not be allowed to sit on Santa’s lap… I myself have never seen an adult sit on Santa’s lap. I am wondering why they would allow an adult to do this and any adult that does sit on his lap takes the chance that Santa may tell a story. Does her picture show her on the lap, is there a negative? Now we have to worry about sexual harrassment [sic] in the Santa business, such a shame.”
“Was that a lump of coal in Santa’s pocket, or was he just happy to see her?”
And from a third, commenting as “Hillary Clinton”:
“Sounds like the ho, ho, ho was working Santa’s South Pole. Is there a Old Navy blue dress with a crusty stain on it?”
C’mon, “Hillary,” you should know better. That dress was from the Gap — and it belongs in the Smithsonian.
