Al Sharpton gives himself 71% raise thanks to de Blasio, Obama

Rate this post

It pays to be a race baiter.
The New York Post reports that Al Sharpton rewarded himself with a 71% raise last year.  Sharpton’s pay increased from $241,545 in 2013 to $412,644, including a bonus of $64,400, tax filings obtained by The Post.
His National Action Network group drew a record $6.9 million in donations last year — as the controversial cleric’s association with Mayor de Blasio and President Obama lent him a newfound air of legitimacy. The Harlem-based nonprofit collected $2 million more in 2014 than the year before, according to the latest financial records available.
De Blasio’s election gave Sharpton a seat at City Hall, as the mayor treated him as an adviser and presented him at a press event next to Police Commissioner Bill Bratton after the death of Eric Garner. Also in 2014, Obama addressed NAN’s annual convention, bringing along five of his Cabinet members.

After Sharpton’s buddy de Blasio took office, some 5,000 people attended NAN’s 2014 conference headlined by Obama and attended by the mayor, Gov. Cuomo and then-US Attorney General Eric Holder. It was NAN’s biggest fund-raiser of the year.
Sharpton has been all over the police for their shootings of “innocent victims.” In August 2014 he held an anti-police rally in Staten Island. And even after all of Sharpton’s police protests, he pulled in a reported $1 million at his 60th-birthday bash. Pols and dignitaries rushed from the annual Al Smith Dinner hosted by Timothy Cardinal Dolan that same night to the NAN fund-raiser at the Four Seasons restaurant.

NAN and Sharpton has shaken down donors. The program distributed at his birthday parties had full-page ads from companies that gave money. AT&T, real-estate developer Forest City Ratner, Walmart, McDonald’s, Verizon and GE Asset Management were all included.
The windfall allowed the organization to finish 2014 in the black. Yet as a shocker to no one, NAN and Sharpton continued their deadbeat ways.
NAN didn’t pony up its last installment on the $780,145 it owed the IRS for unpaid payroll taxes until this Oct. 22, the organization’s financial statements show. The nonprofit had racked up unpaid payroll taxes since at least 2003, according to public records.
Sharpton, meanwhile, still has outstanding tax liens of $3.4 million, including money he owes personally to both New York state and the IRS, and taxes owed by his businesses, according to public records. He paid off one federal lien, for $931,398, in April. Sharpton has maintained that he owes much less money than records reflect and that he has been chipping away at the bills through payment plans.
Sharpton insists he didn’t really get a raise last year (he must be using Common Core math). “I’m glad that NAN has resolved all of our past tax debts three years earlier than our agreement with the IRS and paid part of the compensation owed to me for several years I did not receive a salary,” Sharpton said in a statement.
But a spokesman for the organization offered a different explanation, saying the salary hike was repayment of loans Sharpton previously made to NAN.
Former IRS official Marcus Owens, an expert on nonprofit law, said the explanation seemed odd. “To structure the payoff of a loan through a salary transfer doesn’t seem really plausible because no one would want to pay income tax on their own money coming back to them,” Owens said. “It seems like that characterization was developed after the fact for some other purpose.”

  1. De Blazio? He isn’t really the Mayor, is he?
    Sharpton is paid to do what he does?

  2. Why isn’t the IRS going after Sharpton?
    Oh, wait. I already know the answer.
    So much for what I used to teach my students that the U.S. has rule of law.

    • Dr Eowyn . . . that’s the thing that sticks in my craw . . . any average Joe would have the IRS camped out at their home trying to collect that amount of money. Yet Mr Blowheart gets pass. It just does not pass the smell test. It fact It stinks to high Heavens!

  3. The US STILL has rules of LAW-but they’re really only binding if they benefit Liberals or work against Conservatives. If they benefit Conservatives,or work AGAINST Liberals,they’re really more like suggestions,not to be adhered to,at the whims of the Ruling Class.

  4. disgusting….

  5. Say good bye to your country America. Any country that would twice elect a a muslim sympathizing fraud like Obama who has had a con artist scumbag like Sharpton into the White House almost 30 times is quickly dying. November 2016 is your last chance.

  6. Good press for Al Sharpton’s alma mater…

  7. The Ghetto Grifter lives. What’s the difference between Al Sharpton and Al Capone? Al Capone had a Code of Honor. (I’m serious). Although Al Capone did beat a man to death with a baseball bat, he DID open free soup kitchens in Chicago during the Depression. And he never forced anyone to buy the services he provided. The only thing the government could get him on was tax evasion, and the IRS seized his limousine and gave it to FDR! (Real fact—look it up!)
    Sharpton must have had, or still has, silent partners who have foisted him on his road to power in his little fiefdom.
    As for Eric Garner, I believe he died as a result of NYC’s insane cigarette tax laws, which police were sent to enforce the morning they killed him. The illegal choke hold administered upon him by the white male police officer was ordered by his black female sargeant. The white male police officer lost his job, the black female sargeant still has hers—as do the other police officers who were present on the scene. This is not to make Garner a saint or a good man: There was NO EXCUSE for the NYPD to kill the man, PERIOD.
    As for Sharpton, his time is short.

    • P.S.
      As for the corporations that fund Sharpton’s grift: Be advised that this list is bound to change, as Rev. Gaunt & Grim makes his rounds. Not to excuse Sharpton (who does have blood on his hands, given the Freddie’s Fashion Mart fire that he instigated), but the Monsanto corporation has killed a lot more people through its products and crimes than Sharpton has.

    • Also , when a ” non combatant ” ( innocent bystander ” )
      was wounded or killed . The family was taken care of

  8. Wonderful news. That means we can start expecting payments on his delinquent taxes, right? Right?

  9. I never realized being a man of the cloth could be so lucrative, amazing! The only power this prick wields is the power these corporations give him, in the way of “hush money”.
    If ignored, he will become as significant as a tse-tse fly on an elephant’s ass.

  10. Reblogged this on PUMABydesign001's Blog and commented:
    Between Barack Obama and Obama wannabe, that Communist twit, Bill de Blasio, Sharpton is being rewarded rather nicely and all on the blood and dead bodies of Americans.
    Should CI #7 not receive his just desserts in this life, the afterlife will be all the hotter.
