“Reverend” Al Sharpton is reportedly on an FBI videotape cutting a deal with a fundraiser in a New York hotel room. For $25,000, Sharpton would help Ronald A. White win a multi-million dollar business deal. Normally, this would be a legitimate business deal. However, when you’re a candidate for the 2004 Democratic nomination for President of the United States, this takes on a new and questionable aspect.
Of course, “Reverend” Al says he did “absolutely nothing illegal”, and goes on to say,
“The tapes vindicate me,” Sharpton said. “They show that I did not talk about bribing a public official or paying money under the table.”
Maybe, maybe not. As the article says, the investigation continues. One thing for certain, though. If Al Sharpton, known for his politics of racial division, class envy and hate, takes a fall for this, winding up spouting his nonsense from the inside of a Federal penitentiary, we’re all going to be a little bit better off. It’d be nicer if people simply saw him for the hypocrite he is and started laughing every time he opened his mouth, but this would work for me.
