Man Jailed for Stalking Anderson Cooper for 5 Years


Anderson Cooper
A 40-year-old Queens man is being held in the prison with $75,000 bail after stalking Cooper, making unwanted phone calls and threatening to 'f**k you up.'


A psychiatric patient who has been terrorizing Anderson Cooper for five years gets arrested. New York Post reported that a 40-year-old Queens man called Alex Hausner had been making unwanted phone calls to Cooper's home since 2008.

The alleged stalker, who described himself as "a gay, Jewish white supremacist," also attempted to meet the news anchor four times. On June 22, Hausner even tried to kick down Cooper's front door. A surveillance camera captured Hausner saying, "I swear to f**king God, don't insult me," as he attempted to break into the house which Cooper shared with his boyfriend.

Prosecutor said that Cooper's partner Benjamin Maisani was also a victim. Hausner allegedly called the East Village gay bar owner "a thug and a mongrel." Hausner added, "They said I was not to be there - that's not true." The crazed fan told Manhattan Criminal Court before his arraignment, "I can prove from my sources that his boyfriend has sent people after me."

Assistant DA Rachel Ehrhardt said in the court that Hausner was convicted a few times. He was arrested for felony first-degree menacing and misdemeanor harassment and stalking. The bail was set at $75,000.
