Shocking news: Al Sharpton is a crook
This news has us pretty upset. Why, we tell you, the Al Sharpton is the last person we ever thought would be crooked. He just seems like such a fine, upstanding, respectable sort of chap. After all, he’s a reverend, you know.
The New York Daily News has the details that have us so depressed:
The Rev. Al Sharpton paid himself a six-figure salary for the first time last year – even as his civil rights group drowns in red ink and his tax bill hit nearly $1 million.
After back-to-back years in which he took no compensation from the National Action Network,Sharpton pulled down $250,000 last year, the organization’s federal tax filings show.
The payday comes even as his group, a Harlem-based nonprofit organization, lists $1.1 million in unpaid city, state and federal payroll taxes as of Jan. 1, the group’s auditor told the Internal Revenue Service.
At the same time, the reverend has three outstanding warrants totaling $988,000 in unpaid personal income taxes from 2002 to 2007, the state Department of Taxation and Finance says.
Well, we suspect that you are just as shocked by this revelation as we are. In fact, we’re sure you’ll agree that this is just some phony baloney scheme cooked up by whitey to keep the black man down.
We’re behind you all the way, Reverend Al. All the way.
