Tom Verni says he has been a target since he had a falling out with the organization. Verni’s attorney Anthony Colleuluori says what it comes down to is fraud.
Media commentator and retired NYPD detective, Tom Verni, is suing a local LGBT organization for allegedly creating a Twitter page with his images with tweets that suggest that he sexually molests underage boys.
He is now suing the Woodbury-based LGBT Network, its CEO David Kilmnick, and others for $5 million.
Verni says things first went south at the end of 2014 when Kilmnick and Verni had a disagreement on Facebook over police turning their backs on the mayor at a slain officer’s funeral and Verni was unfriended.
“As a result of that Facebook dust up that we had, that’s when people started coming forward and messaging me saying, ‘hey, do you know what’s going on over there at the LGBT Network?’” Verni said.
