Eric Holder Defends Al Sharpton's Ties To White House, Despite Tax Debts

At tax time, many Americans might find it pretty tempting to emulate Rev. Al Sharpton. After all, heseems to get by just fine no matter how many taxeshe owes and no matter for how long. And he seems to be more of a fixture at the White House than Lois Lerners hard drive. Even Politico seems to be scratching its collective head. Politico was where Lois Lerner broke her silence.

And Politico justasked outgoing Attorney GeneralEric Holder,IsAl Sharptontoo close to this White House? The softball interviewer who had the temerity to make such an outrageous suggestion wasMike Allen, Politicos chief White House correspondent. That such aquestionis even being asked by Democrats who rarely question the President is a surprise.

Mr. Sharpton has been accused , for example, byEric Garners daughter,of being all about themoney. And yet the reverend and activist owes New York State over $900,000 from 2008 and 2010 taxes, and greater sums to the IRS. With about $4.5 million in tax liens, most taxpayers know they would be pushed and prodded to pay. Mr. Sharpton, however, seems graced by a kind of Teflon liturgical outfit.

Some might be luck, of course. On severaloccasions he suffered fires that destroyed his records. It is hard not to think ofLois Lerners hard drive. Several fires destroyed Mr. Sharptons financial records just as he was about to turn them over to officials. But AG Holder sees no problem, though Mr. Sharpton has been to the White House on many occasions. Aside from Mr. Holder, many peoplehave questioned whyPresident Obama would so elevateRev.Sharpton, particularly sincehe owes millions in taxes.

Mr. Holder sawnoproblem with Rev.Sharptons proximity to the most powerful man in the world, saying, The president has a number of people who he listens to, who he interacts with. You know, Reverend Sharpton is a person who has interacted with people within the administration, including myself. But we also hear from people who have, you know, fundamentally different views than Al Sharpton has.

Not all of the tax problems are new. In 1993, Rev. Sharptonpleaded guilty to a misdemeanorfor failure to file a state tax return. HisRaw Talent operation which he usesforspeaking engagements has reportedly also hadtax problems. But beyond these smidgens, Mr. Sharpton has never faced criminal tax-related charges. He has been marvelously successful inexplaining that he is simply in over his head.

It isnt only the taxman that is not being paid, according to reports. Even worthy causes like hotels, landlords, and travel agencies are getting the cold shoulder from Mr. Sharpton or from his advocacy organization, theNational Action Network. He hastwo for-profit business,Revals Communications and Raw Talent. Some of his financial woes appear to stem from poor divisions between business and personal, a common tax problem among entrepreneurs.

Al Sharpton, Comcast sued for racial discrimination

A black media group has filed a $20 billion racial-discrimination lawsuit against Comcast and Time Warner, as well as MSNBC host Al Sharpton, the NAACP and other black advocacy groups, for allegedly being paid to facilitate such discrimination.

The National Association of African-American Owned Media and Entertainment Studios Networks filed the complaint in California on Friday ahead of Comcast and Time Warners proposed merger.

According to court documents obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, the group claims that Comcast and Time Warner collectively spend approximately $25 billion annually for the licensing of pay-television channels and advertising of their products and services, yet 100% African Americanowned media receives less than $3 million per year.

The lawsuit claims that Comcasts diversity deals with the NAACP, the National Urban League and Mr. Sharptons National Action Network are a sham, undertaken to whitewash Comcasts discriminatory business practices.

Despite the notoriously low ratings that Sharptons show generates, Comcast has allowed Sharpton to maintain his hosting position for more than three years in exchange for Sharptons continued public support for Comcast on issues of diversity, the lawsuit says.

Comcast said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter that the complaint represents nothing more than a string of inflammatory, inaccurate, and unsupported allegations.

We are proud of our outstanding record supporting and fostering diverse programming, including programming from African-Americanowned and controlled cable channels, a spokeswoman said. We will defend vigorously against the scurrilous allegations in this complaint and fully expect that the court will dismiss them.

The National Action Network said it has not been served with any papers and considers the claim frivolous.

If in fact we were to be served, we would gladly defend our relationship with any company as well as to state on the record why we found these discriminatory accusations made by said party to be less than credible and beneath the standards that we engage in, the group said, THR reported. As for Rev. Sharptons TV show ratings the numbers are clear. Rev. Sharptons show has the highest ratings of any 6 p.m. show in the history of the network.

Mr. Sharpton said he welcomes the opportunity to answer the frivolous allegations and says he will be bringing counterclaims for defamation, THR reported.

Erica Snipes, Eric Garner's daughter, slams Al Sharpton as 'all about' the money

Erica Snipes, the daughter of Eric Garner the New Yorker who was placed in a chokehold by police and died hours later at the hospital has issued a scathing assessment of Al Sharpton, reportedly saying the reverend only cares about money, not principle.

She made the statements during a secretly recorded conversation with Project Veritas, the group headed by conservative activist James OKeefe, the New York Postreported.

One of Mr. OKeefes employees posed as a supporter of Garner during a protest at the St. George Ferry Terminal on Staten Island and recorded the discussion with a hidden camera, the newspaper said.

In the video, the investigator asks: You think Al Sharpton is kind of like a crook in a sense?

And Ms. Snipes answers: Hes about this, and then rubs her fingers together, the New York Post reported.

Hes about money with you?

And she answers: Yeah, the newspaper reported.

Ms. Snipes also said that Mr. Sharptons National Action Network director on Staten Island, Cynthia Davis, chided her for distributing street fliers about her father that didnt contain the NAN logo.

[Davis] started attacking me Oh, I see that you got this flier out, how come you didnt add the logo? Instead of me, [Sharpton] wants his face in front, she said, the New York Post reported. Al Sharpton paid for the funeral. Shes trying to make me feel like I owe them.

Ms. Snipes later said in an interview with the New York Post that she didnt say that I think Al Sharpton is all about the money, but stood by her criticisms of Ms. Davis. Mr. Sharpton, meanwhile, accused Project Veritas of splicing and dicing stuff together and of distortion, he said, the New York Post reported.

Al Sharpton touts message from Obama: 'To Rev. Sharpton. A fellow warrior for justice!'

The Rev. Al Sharpton couldnt attend Nelson Mandelas funeral in 2013, so President Obama instead brought him a piece of memorabilia to hang in his office a copy of the program with a personally inscribed message.

What did Mr. Obama write?

To Rev. Sharpton, the Wall Street Journal reported. A fellow warrior for justice!

The souvenir hangs on Mr. Sharptons wall in his Midtown Manhattan offices.

At the same time, not all especially those in the law enforcement camp see Mr. Sharpton through that lens.

Hes the leading advocate against the police across the country, said former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, to the Wall Street Journal. Every time a policeman is in trouble, they see him getting on a plane, then standing next to the family making allegations against the police.
