'Bad Santa' gets early Christmas gifts

The Examiner predicts what The City’s leaders, losers, and movers and shakers want from Santa.

Who: John ‘Bad Santa’ Toomey

Holiday wish: Christmas year-round

Why: After 20 years of doing Santa’s work at Macy’s Union Square, the potty-mouthed saint finally received his break as the real-life ‘Bad Santa.’ Although he has lost his gig at the department store, Toomey was quickly offered a job at Lefty O’Doul’s at double the pay, and he has been asked to be the spokesman for the Firefighters Toy Program and appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” Looks like Christmas came early.
