"Central Park Karen" Amy Cooper once stalked an ex-friend, said he stole $65,00 from her and slammed his vote for Obama. The New York Post reports that Martin Priest, who has known Cooper since 2003, says she was romantically interested in him, but he didn't return her affections. “The longer I avoided her, the angrier she got,” Priest claimed. He reported her to the police for "stalking" and "harassment" on two separate occasions, once in New Jersey and once in New York City. In 2015, she sued him, claiming he'd taken $65,000 from her after a love affair. The case has since been dismissed. When he told her that he voted for President Obama, she couldn't "believe it." Cooper became famous this week after being caught on camera calling the cops on a black man in Central Park, only to falsely claim he was threatening her and her dog.
