a Fallen Hero

By Gldmeier @gldmeier
I admit, this was surprising, and shocking, to me. I don't remember hearing about these allegations before.
In my mind, Rabbi Goldstein was simply a hero for his actions in the Chabad of Poway shooting in which he was injured and then for becoming a leading advocate for peace and the elimination of violence.a fallen hero
It turns out that people are complicated, as if nobody already knew that. Rabbi Goldstein was also a scam artist and con man. He swindled the government and donors out of millions of dollars over decades of work. Goldstein has now been convicted of his crimes of various types of fraud and will sit in jail along with having to pay back millions of dollars.
This this happens is no surprise, but that a hero in the national spotlight is a con artist is somewhat of a surprise.
