Anderson Cooper's Stalker Is Charged


A 40-year-old psychiatric patient who allegedly stalked CNN's Anderson Cooper for five years, including making unsolicited calls and trying to kick down the front door, has been charged. 

Convicted felon Alex Hausner, from Queens, faced court last night accused of making unwelcome phone calls and trying four times to see Cooper.

Last month, the 'gay, Jewish white supremacist' allegedly attempted to kick down the front door of the anchor's four-story West Village residence which he shares with boyfriend Benjamin Maisani.

According to court papers obtained by the New York Post, security cameras captured Hausner's vicious attempted break-in. 

'I swear to f--king God, don’t insult me. I’m going to f--k you up!' he can be heard screaming while kicking the door to Cooper's $4.3 million converted firehouse.

Sitting in Manhattan Criminal Court last night before his arraignment, Hausner told New York Post Cooper's partner Maisani was behind the 'untrue' allegations. 

'I can prove from my sources that his boyfriend [Maisani] has sent people after me,' he said.

'He’s a thug and a mongrel. They said I was not to be there — that’s not true.'

According to court papers, Maisani, an East Village bar owner, is also being treated as a victim.  

Hausner was last night ordered held in lieu of $75,000 bail on felony first-degree menacing, and misdemeanor harassment and stalking.
