According To The New York Times, Al Sharpton Owes $4.5M In Taxes And Steals From His Charities

New York Times: Al Sharpton Owes $4.5 Million In Taxes And Steals From His Charities – Downtrend

Man, I really thought the race hustle was a lucrative line of work. You make up racism and guilty liberal assholes send you money. There’s really no overhead; just profit. It may be that race hustling is a good line of work, but apparently Al Sharpton sucks at it or at least the money management side of it. The New York Times is reporting that Big Al owes a ton in back taxes and “borrows” from his various charities to support his lavish lifestyle.

Last month I reported on Sharpton’s birthday bash, which was really just a fundraiser to pay down his debt. At the time, Sharpton’s people said they had a handle on the money he owed, but the NYT paints a much different picture:

Mr. Sharpton has regularly sidestepped the sorts of obligations most people see as inevitable, like taxes, rent and other bills. Records reviewed by The New York Times show more than $4.5 million in current state and federal tax liens against him and his for-profit businesses.

Then there’s the stealing:

With the tax liability outstanding, Mr. Sharpton traveled first class and collected a sizable salary, the kind of practice by nonprofit groups that the United States Treasury’s inspector general for tax administration recently characterized as “abusive,” or “potentially criminal” if the failure to turn over or collect taxes is willful.

Oh, and even more stealing:

Mr. Sharpton and the National Action Network have repeatedly failed to pay travel agencies, hotels and landlords. He has leaned on the generosity of friends and sometimes even the organization, intermingling its finances with his own to cover his daughters’ private school tuition.

Sharpton is also likely guilty of campaign finance fraud:

With Mr. Sharpton focused on the 2004 presidential race, National Action Network’s finances were reaching crisis levels, tax documents and other public records show. The group’s revenues totaled just over $1 million in 2004, about half of what they had been two years earlier. Nevertheless, it picked up expenses from Mr. Sharpton’s presidential bid: $181,115 in consulting and other costs that should have been charged to his campaign, the Federal Election Commission later found.

More theft:

The group also faced court judgments for several hundred thousand dollars in unpaid office rent and hotel bills.

And tax fraud:

To stay afloat, the nonprofit became reliant on money that was supposed to go to payroll taxes, according to its financial statements. The amount National Action Network underpaid the federal government in taxes went from about $900,000 in 2003 to almost $1.9 million by 2006, records show.

In addition, Sharpton is constantly being sued by his landlord for not paying his rent. Since 2006 he’s been sued for hundreds of thousands of dollars on properties he occupies but doesn’t pay for.

It’s probably not shocking to most who are reading this that Al Sharpton is a POS schemer and charlatan, but it is kind of surprising that the liberal PC New York Times has published a piece critical of him. Especially considering that Sharpton is a White House consultant and Obama’s go-to guy on race relations.

This article makes you wonder why anyone would donate to an Al Sharpton charity. As far as I can tell, the only purpose of his National Action Network is to keep him in the lap of luxury. You never hear about Sharpton feeding people, sending kids to college, or building homes for the underprivileged; just about him jetting across the globe to condemn the latest instances of made-up racial injustice.

So not only is Sharpton a race hustler, he’s a regular hustler too: defrauding his charities and the government for personal gain. It’s lucky for him he has friends in high places because anyone else in his position would be in jail by now.

Noted Race Pimp does what race pimps do

Reverend Al, who is a gasbag says Rand Paul should never speak about race. Maybe because Sharpton and his vile cohorts at MSNBS are ALWAYS talking  about race, and usually lying about it I might add.

UPDATE! Gateway Pundit notes that Sharpton, self-proclaimed voting rights champion that he is, welcomed a known voter fraud felon recently

Melowese voted twice for herself in 2012 and three times for her comatose sister!

Melowese got a hero’s welcome by local Democrats at the party.
Cincinnati.com reported:

A Hamilton County poll worker who has been held up nationally as an example of voter fraud took the stage at a local voting rights rally – outraging Republicans and dismaying even top local Democrats.

The Rev. Al Sharpton, keynote speaker at Thursday’s rally to kick-off the campaign for an Ohio Voters’ Bill of Rights Ohio Constitutional amendment, even hugged Melowese Richardson.

Richardson, a Democrat, was convicted of voter fraud after using her position as poll worker to vote more than once in the 2012 presidential election. She got a five year prison term, but was released earlier this month after local Democratic activists pressed for a fairer term.

A judge sentenced her to probation instead.

Richardson was among the more than 400 at Word of Deliverance Church in Forest Park when Cincinnati National Action Network President Bobby Hilton called her on stage for a “welcome home.”

A tweet from an Enquirer reporter about the moment sparked immediate outrage from Republicans on Twitter.

Even Democrat leaders questioned the idea of applauding Richardson.

“I am very glad the county prosecutor and judge reconsidered and got her out of jail, but she is not a hero,” Hamilton County Democratic Party Chairman Tim Burke, who was at the rally, told the Enquirer. “What she did was criminal conduct and was particularly problematic because of her role as a precinct executive.”

Hamilton County Democratic Party Executive Director Caleb Faux, who was also at the rally, saw it as an attempt to portray Richardson as a martyr because of the lengthy sentence

YEP! that is the Sharpton we know isn’t it?

The Left prefers emotions to facts

Case in point is this mockery of a manger scene in Claremont, California

The story, from Claremont, California:

Nativity scenes have a few standard elements: a manger, swaddling clothes, happy parents, sheep, maybe the Three Wise Men. They don’t generally include Trayvon Martin.

But there he is, wearing a hoodie, a stream of blood pouring from his chest onto the straw-covered floor of the scene outside Claremont United Methodist Church, the holy family around him.

What does the birth of Jesus Christ have to do with a hoodlum getting himself shot while trying to bash out the brains of a community watch captain against the sidewalk?

For one thing, the backdrop to the Christmas story is the slaughter by King Herod of all infants in Bethlehem, a barbarous attempt to kill the Messiah.

Rather than tidings of comfort and joy, that time of year would have seen “other parents in agony because their children had just been killed,” a plaque explains.

The Martyrdom of Saint Skittles was traumatic for the artist.

“What if Jesus was lying there bleeding to death? I was kind of thinking of that,” Zachary said.

It is easy to just chalk this up to Liberal stupidity, but there is something deeper at work here. When the Trayvon Martin case caught national attention the Left falsely portrayed in the light they wanted to portray it in. Martin was an innocent Black kid just trying to get home. He was racially profiled, hunted down, and killed in cold blood by a crazy, gun-totin’ racist White man. Of course the left got all of those “facts” wrong but yet they continued to peddle their lies as facts. Still today, they stick to their assumptions even though they are demonstrably untrue. And, in 10, or 20 years, Leftists will still be telling their version of the Trayvon Martin case.

Why are they so backasswards? They KNOW they are lying, but they still continue. For the usual suspects like Al Sharpton, Je$$e Jackson, the NAACP, and the MSNBS gang the reason is simple. They perpetuate such fallacies to sell books, get ratings, get donations, or to help Left-Wing candidates win elections etc.. But what of the folks who are not on TV, or radio, or running for office? Why do they continue to not only believe false narratives, but to absolutely CRAVE such narratives to be true? Do they enjoy seeing themselves as perpetual victims? Do they prefer to believe that America is so deeply flawed that racism will never go away? Apparently so. It is tragic that so many Liberals, given the choice between facts, and emotionalistic talking points based in lies, will flock to the false, emotionalistic narratives.

Liberalism is, after all an ideology for pessimists who want to be victims more than they want to be honest.
