If you remember, when the news first broke that a deli might come to 12th/S, the only information I could find about Charles Emor, the would-be owner, is that he was found guilty of stealing computers from his charter schools. Some people knocked me for publishing this information, as they didn’t see it as relevant.
Well, now we know Charles Emor is no longer associated with the opening of this business, and I think we found out why. The Washington Post recently published a story (thanks to commenter Brian for flagging it) that Emor was charged with stealing $2.4 million in government special education grants and spending the money on cars, electronics, and jewelry.
So, not only is the guy not associated with the would-be deli (we’re not sure what’s happening with it now) he hasn’t changed.
