NYC office investigating anti-Semitic parody


A Jewish employee of New York City’s Parks Department says he was subjected to anti-Semitic taunts.

Alan Spitalnik, a truck driver for the department, claims he walked in on three co-workers performing a Hitler parody last week, the New York Daily News reported.

A representative of the department’s equal employment opportunity office reportedly visited the Forestry Division’s Staten Island headquarters, where the parody allegedly took place, to question the participants.

“He gave us all a tongue-lashing,” one source said. “He said that this is unacceptable.”

A source at the Parks Department said the participants could be fired or suspended if the allegations are substantiated.
