The sockpuppet comment was left on the main post on the Le Marais scandal. Le Marais is a 5WPR client, and 5WPR's Senior Vice President Juda Engelmayer was the man in charge of the Le Marais account.
Here is what Engelmayer did.
He left the following comment in support of Le Marais under the name "Gilad Weinreb":
It occurs to me that the mere fact that Le Marais is open Pesach means that its kitchen, dishes and facilities will be kashered - likely Saturday night. Meaning, the kosher kitchen will be a newly kashered kitchen and, under the two current mashgichim, the food and preparations are being watched; likely with even greater concern than ever before given the controversy.
Le Marais will be reborn and the place will be brand newly kosher - again.

The Chosen - Chaim Potok
Tevye der milkhiker - Shalom Aleichem
World of Our Fathers - Irving Howe
Jewish Wisdom - Joseph Telushkin
