With a hidden FBI camera rolling inside a New York hotel suite in 2003, an unsuspecting Rev. Al Sharpton, Democratic candidate for president, spoke candidly.Uh-Oh... Big Al is not only an ass, but STUPID! I am willing to bet the FBI has more hits to come!
Sharpton offered to help Philadelphia fund-raiser Ronald A. White win a multimillion-dollar business deal, if White helped him raise $50,000 for politics.
White offered $25,000. "If you bring my guys up on this hedge fund, and I have the right conversation," White said, "I'll give you what you need."
"Cool," Sharpton said.
UPDATE #2: More coverage Here and here.
I don't want people to assume only Fox is reporting this. FYI, NY Daily News is the main competitor of the NY Post, owned by the same people who own Fox, so take your "Murdoch" Conspiracies and shove them up your...
UPDATE #1: Boy, did I call this one. The good Rev wasted no time in blaming "The Man" going after him becuase of his 'work'. .
NEW YORK (AP) ― The Rev. Al Sharpton angrily denounced reports Thursday that federal authorities are investigating his 2004 presidential bid, suggesting that the Justice Department was retaliating against him for his civil rights advocacy.I may be spit-balling here, but maybe they are going after him for breaking the law and for being an ass... Ok, maybe for just breaking laws.
Uber hypocrite, race baiter and all around ass hole, “Reverend” Al Sharpton is under investigation (again).
From Fox News
Federal authorities have subpoenaed financial records and employees in an apparent probe of the Rev. Al Sharpton's 2004 presidential bid, nonprofit civil rights group, and for-profit businesses, a newspaper reported Thursday.
They were told to provide investigators with financial records from the campaign and roughly six Sharpton-related businesses, as well as personal financial documents of Sharpton and his wife, the newspaper said.
This should be rich. I am sure Rev Al has broken more than a few laws (again) and now will get pinched for his shady financial dealings. Of course all of this will be blamed on some grand White Man conspiracy to get him. He will say that this is all based on racism. Ugh.
Of course this is not the first time the law has caught up with him. They put Capone away over tax crime you know. One can hope… one can dream.
Fact is, I hope he is exposed for being the lying piece of shit that he is: A hypocrite, a racist, a divider and self appointed PC police officer who does not carry business cards since his wallet is full of race cards.
I am surprised he hasn’t sued God for having White Christmases. The Bing Crosby estate would be wise to lay low around this clown.
