We know, it’s hard to believe the tax-evading charlatan is all about the money. Knock us over with a feather.
Al Sharpton is all about the Benjamins, a daughter of police chokehold victim Eric Garner claims in a bombshell videotape.
Erica Snipes tees off on the reverend as interested primarily in money during a secretly recorded conversation by controversial conservative activist James O’Keefe’s group, Project Veritas.
One of O’Keefe’s investigators poses as a Garner supporter with a hidden camera during a protest last month at the St. George Ferry Terminal on Staten Island.
“You think Al Sharpton is kind of like a crook in a sense?” the investigator is heard asking Garner’s oldest daughter.
“He’s about this,” Snipes replies, rubbing her fingers together.
“He’s about money with you?” the undercover asks.
“Yeah,” Snipes responds.
Naturally since this comes from James O’Keefe, the lefty clowns at Media Matters question the authenticity.
and as always with james okeefe videos, probably a chopped up edited deception.

Yeah, a condemnation from a Media Matters clown is sure to hurt. Sharpton, meanwhile, has been hit with a $20 billion lawsuit along with his bosses from COmcast (or is that the other way around?) alleging, get this, racial discrimination.
Even though the FCC hasn’t yet ruled on the proposed merger between Comcast and Time Warner Cable, one group has already filed a lawsuit claiming at least $20 billion in damages from the way the two giants allegedly discriminate against black-owned media.
The complaint, filed in California on Friday, comes from the National Association of African-American Owned Media, which also filed a similar suit against AT&T and DirecTV in December.
This time, the plaintiff is not only targeting both Comcast and TWC — on the eve of the two companies merging to become what would be the largest pay television distributor in the United States — but also various African-American advocacy groups and MSNBC host Al Sharpton for allegedly facilitating discrimination.
Comcast is one of the biggest companies to employ a chief diversity officer, and its practices have been lauded by many including Black Enterprise magazine, which recently named it as one of the 40 best companies for diversity. The lawsuit figures to face many hurdles, from the sufficiency of its allegations to possibly the First Amendment, but for now it presents a larger portrait of a media company that isn’t carrying many fully owned black channels and the dangers of allowing it to grow bigger.
You know what’s weird? Why doesn’t the media demand Obama and every other Democrats answer questions about Sharpton? We’ve spent a week watching the media gang rape of Rudy Giuliani and Scott Walker, so isn’t it time for a media rectal exam of Sharpton and his cronies?
To cap a great day for the race-hustling buffoon, it’s rumored he’s soon to lose his low-rated MSNBC show, not that anyone would notice.
Here’s video of the O’Keefe report:
