Al Sharpton’s 2004 presidential campaign still owes more than $900K

It’s good to be a well-connected, demorat “reverend.”

From NY Post: Fifteen year’s later, the check is still in the mail.

The Rev. Al Sharpton’s failed 2004 presidential campaign still owes more than $900,000. The unpaid debt of his committee, “Sharpton 2004,” has remained unchanged for a decade, according to its most recent FEC filing in March 2019.

The campaign has not filed any of its required disclosure forms since then, earning multiple letters of rebuke from the feds. “If committees are unable to pay debts, they can file a debt-settlement plan with the FEC . . . committees could not just decide not to pay,” a spokesman from the Federal Election Commission told The Post.

The holy man’s campaign is in the hole, despite him personally earning more money than ever. In addition to a lucrative hosting gig on MSNBC, Sharpton raked in cash helming his influential nonprofit National Action Network. In 2018, he pocketed more than a million dollars from the charity.

Since the debt is owed by the campaign committee, and not Sharpton directly, the rev is not on the hook for the cash. Rather his campaign treasurer, Andrew Rivera, is the one legally responsible for it. Rivera did not respond to multiple requests from The Post.

“It does reflect poorly on the people at the helm. I have worked for candidates who I know have taken great pains to make sure staff and consultants are taken care of,” Jerri Ann Henry, a consultant who had worked around campaigns and PACs for 15 years, told The Post. “Frankly, almost a million dollars, that’s a lot of money. Today’s campaigns spend at that level all the time, but that is very significant coming all the way back in 2004.”

Sharpton told The Post he was good for the money. “I have asked Andrew Rivera, the finance chair of my 2004 campaign, to set up a meeting with the Federal Election Commission so that I can resolve any campaign debts related to Sharpton 2004,” he said. “I am willing to work out a settlement for all claims with my own money to the degree that I’m allowed and will raise money directly . . . Even if I am not legally liable for it, I am certainly morally responsible.”

I forgot The Reverend ran for prez. It’s no wonder black people never get anywhere with “leaders” like this race-baiting pig. Somehow he was more palatable in his fat big-mouth days. Now he looks like an extra from Alien Autopsy

He received his degree from The Online Institute of Poverty Pimping and he minored in race-baiting. Then he was ordained a minister in the Church of HarlemHipHop. He also performed at least one miracle, turning a busted scratch ticket into an EBT card. Pretty impressive you must admit

So-With THIS in mind,Sharpton’s voice is supposed to mean something to America—why?
