Lying nun begs on behalf of unholy rape clan

For a decade, Sister Milindia has tugged on heartstrings in Little Italy. Wearing a cross, veil and nun’s black habit, she approaches strangers and asks for donations, saying she’s an Episcopal sister raising money for an orphanage and the homeless.

But “Sister Milindia” is not a sister, the New York Post writes. The Episcopal Church has never heard of her; she’s been busted at least once, in 1997, for misrepresenting herself as a nun in The Bronx; and the orphanage for which she claims to raise money doesn’t exist.

Her real name is Mindy LeGrand, 54, and she’s connected to a “church” in Crown Heights founded in the 1970s by a killer rapist with a harem of a dozen phony nuns. The church is now led by the founder’s son, who is also a convicted rapist.

The outfit has no Episcopal or other church affiliation, is not a registered charity and has no foster- or day-care license of any kind.
