Cops called on 13-year-olds for selling cupcakes

CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. — A politician in a New York suburb called police on two 13-year-old boys for selling cupcakes and other baked goods without a permit, according to a report Monday.

The Journal News in Westchester County said the boys, Andrew DeMarchis and Kevin Graff, had a brisk business selling cupcakes, cookies, brownies and Rice Krispie treats for $1 each in a Chappaqua park.

However, New Castle Councilman Michael Wolfensohn called the police after discovering the sale was not for charity, the newspaper said.

Funny how the article doesn't mention that Wolfensohn is a Democrat. If this had been a story, say, about a Republican councilman stepping out with a hooker, you can bet that they wouldn't have forgotten to include party affiliation.
