Rev Al spreads his wings and dips his toes in the waters of national economics. We are finished. No amount of turnover in congress can correct the damage being done.

I saw an article where the headline read that the Rev Al gave economic advice to the Teleprompter-Reader-In-Chief.

I then threw up.

You then corrected your stupidity and spammed it. Personally, I preferred YOUR original...

I saw an ARTILE where the headline read that the Rev Al gave economic advice to the Teleprompter-Reader-In-Chief.

Hair style advice from Rev. Al? Nope. Race relation advice from Rev. Al? Nope.

Doesn't or didn't Al owe the IRS and the state of New York $1.5 million in unpaid taxes? Who on Obama's cabinet recommended Al to Obama for economic advice anyway? Tax dodger Geithner?

I like reading under-informed nonsense...

An auditor’s report notes that Sharpton’s group “has been in the process of negotiating an offer in compromise to settle” its IRS tab.

Guess it's business as usual, for the non-sense POS troll liar...

Sharpton probably weaseled his way in by threatening to boycott Democrat campaign coffers.

So, that makes it ok?

Although it's refreshing to see you, and Al, admit that Al Sharpton is a tax cheating, law breaking criminal, where's the outrage, such as the crap you feigned over Romney during the campaign, when the allegations were all BS?

Libs are such hypocrites.

Tax issues

On May 9, 2008 the Associated Press reported that Sharpton and his businesses owed almost $1.5 million in unpaid taxes and penalties. Sharpton owed $931,000 in federal income tax and $366,000 to New York, and his for-profit company, Rev. Al Communications, owed another $176,000 to the state.[9]

On June 19, 2008 the New York Post reported that the Internal Revenue Service had sent subpoenas to several corporations that had donated to Sharpton's National Action Network. In 2007 New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo began investigating the National Action Network, because it failed to make proper financial reports, as required for non-profits.[89] According to the Post, several major corporations, including Anheuser-Busch and Colgate-Palmolive, have donated thousands of dollars to the National Action Network. The Post asserted that the donations were made to prevent boycotts or rallies by the National Action Network.[90]

Sharpton countered the investigative actions with a charge that they reflected a political agenda by United States agencies.[91]

On September 29, 2010 Robert Snell of The Detroit News reported that the Internal Revenue Service had filed a notice of federal tax lien against Sharpton in New York City in the amount of over $538,000.[92] Sharpton's lawyer asserts that the notice of federal tax lien relates to Sharpton's year 2009 federal income tax return, the due date of which has been extended to October 15, 2010, according to the lawyer. However, the Snell report states that the lien relates to taxes assessed during 2009.[93]

On December 15, 2005 Sharpton agreed to repay $100,000 in public funds he received from the federal government for his 2004 Presidential campaign. The repayment was required because Sharpton had exceeded federal limits on personal expenditures for his campaign. At that time his most recent Federal Election Commission filings (from January 1, 2005) stated that Sharpton's campaign still had debts of $479,050 and owed Sharpton himself $145,146 for an item listed as "Fundraising Letter Preparation — Kinko's."[95]

In 2009 the Federal Election Commission announced it had levied a fine of $285,000 against Sharpton's 2004 presidential campaign for breaking campaign finance rules during his presidential campaign.

That is a lot more proof and reference than you post, mr low integrity poster.

Isn't it funny that the low information plagiarist who sits in his Mpls are basement, but claims to be from Seattle, says you lied when all you did is copy a factual piece along with offering a link to provide the source.

Gotta love the delusions that float through a medically atered brain.

I gave up worrying about what the slewche thought a long time ago. Most of his posts are just nonsensical attempts at insults and poorly conceived acronyms. He also thinks it isn't plagiarism if he doesn't claim it is his, even though he posts it under his moniker with no citations.
