Equal Treatment Under the Law Time the the IRS and do its Job and Audit and Garnish Al Sharpton’s Wages

“MSNBC should suspend Rev Al Sharpton until he gets on a payment plan to pay the reported millions he owes in taxes. And the IRS and state revenue divisions should garnish his MS/NBC salary until his reported tax bill is paid. NYT reports he owes $4.5 million in taxes ” Greta Van Susteren

NYT investigation: MSNBC’s Sharpton runs ‘delinquent’ nonprofit organization

A New York Times investigation into the finances of MSNBC host and Washington heavyweight Al Sharpton has found “$4.5 million in current state and federal tax liens against him and his for-profit businesses,” according to the story by Russ Buettner. Titled “Questions About Sharpton’s Finances Accompany His Rise in Influence,” the story documents a long trail of unmet obligations and a messy web of financial interests spanning nonprofits, personal finances and beyond.

“Mr. Sharpton has regularly sidestepped the sorts of obligations most people see as inevitable, like taxes, rent and other bills,” claims the piece. Even with his tax liabilities, notes the story, Sharpton “traveled first class and collected a sizable salary.”

Though he anchors “Politics Nation” on MSNBC on weeknights, Sharpton is a target of far greater resonance than a cable news host. The longtime rabble-rousing Brooklyn preacher and civil rights activist has become a player of national import under the Obama administration. As explained in an August piece in Politico Magazine by Glenn Thrush, Sharpton had transformed himself into the Obama administration’s “go-to man on race.” After the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., in August, Sharpton established himself as the “de facto contact and conduit for a jittery White House seeking to negotiate a middle ground between meddling and disengagement.”

All of which makes him a large and fair target for a newspaper investigation.

In 1991, Sharpton founded the National Action Network (NAN), which calls itself “one of the leading civil rights organizations in the Nation with chapters throughout the entire United States.” Trouble is, it has achieved its current size without paying the payroll taxes of its employees, according to the Times:

  1. Another phony who should have been in prison for the Twana Brawly case, it is not to late to put this hypocrite tax evader away so we no longer have to listen to his big mouth.

  2. How does this fly with the MSNBC’s message of the wealthy paying their fair share? Hell, Sharpton hasn’t even been paying his share, let alone his fair share.

  3. He is two persons in one. He tries to be a social activist for African -Americans (Americans) but he has a dark side.

    In his quest for attention he became a mouthpiece for Twana Brawley. He ruined the reputations of several good men. He has never fessed up and has not apologized. I will never forgive him. That story was crazy from the start and he should have known better.

  4. I hear that they want to change the name of Black Friday to something less racially charged.

  5. #4. The lawyer for the Brown family talked about civil rights violations. He cited the Grand Jury transcript and the fact that Wilson referred to Brown as a “demon”. Thankfully the interviewer asked if “demon” was a racially i sensitive word.

  6. Yes I saw that interview. Some people make it up as they go along.

    A demon, daemon or fiend, is a supernatural, often malevolent being prevalent in religion, occultism, literature, fiction, mythology and folklore.
