Like Father Like Daughter: Dominique Sharpton Sues City for $5 Million After "Spraining" Her Ankle

From Neal Colgrass of www.newser.com
(NEWSER) – Al Sharpton’s daughter is suing New York City for $5 million after apparently taking a spill and suffering severe injuries—a story the New York Post is reporting with some glee. “Shakedown artist Al Sharpton’s eldest child wants $5 million from city taxpayers,” the paper says, referring to boycotts and protests by the reverend that elicited corporate donations. Dominique Sharpton fell on craggy pavement at a Manhattan crosswalk on Oct. 2 last year and was “severely injured, bruised, and wounded,” suffering “multiple ligament and tendon tears,” according to a lawsuit. She “still suffers and will continue to suffer for some time physical pain and bodily injuries,” the suit adds. After the fall, she reportedly wrote on Instagram that “I sprained my ankle real bad lol.”
Dominique, who is membership director of her dad’s National Action Network, was seen in a walking boot for weeks after the tumble. But she’s been moving around since, joining NAN’s Justice for All march in December and wearing high heels, the Post notes. She also posted on Instagram that “We hiked UP the mountain” on her current Bali vacation, adding, “YES I ALMOST DIED GETTING UP THERE LOL” (the Blaze has a screenshot). Whatever happens, her lawsuit isn’t the first: New York City has paid $60 million in 885 uneven-pavement cases over a 22-month stretch. So how did Dominique decide on $5 million? Her lawyer says his firm chose the number “as a safeguard for Ms. Sharpton in a worst-case scenario.”

A broken down, brain dead, skanky, meth addicted street hooker who can only command $10 for providing an oral sexual service has more integrity and decency within her being than this sleazebag spawn of a race-baiting, murderous, riot-organizing, hate-mongering sack of crap.

“Dominique, who is membership director of her dad’s National Action Network” Just like Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow/PUSH Coalition, Al Sharpton’s NAN is also a very lucrative shakedown enterprise, with 45 chapters across the country (see https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2014/12/31/companies-that-finance-al-sharptons-race-baiting/), which means Dominique has perfected the “art” of not working while living well off the labor of others. As for “New York City has paid $60 million in 885 uneven-pavement cases over a 22-month stretch,” it isn’t just Dominique Sharpton who’s doing this. None other than a former FOTM contributor, S., made $1 million in a lawsuit just like Dominique’s some years ago. You’d think… Read more »

5 million for such a little trip? A lady of her pedigree could certainly think bigger and higher than that. How about going for 20 million for a quick tumble of the empire state building?

Well, if NYC is really interested in defending their case, they have plenty of ammo: https://nypost.com/2015/05/18/al-sharptons-daughter-hiked-up-a-mountain-on-sprained-ankle/comment image

Come on guys, give her a break, you know she wants that money to pay her daddy’s tax bill. Right?
Just another one that has probably never held a job in her life. Just another blood sucker. We know she is fit and able to work.

They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
LOL – In this case, it got stuck on the trunk and never actually hit the ground.
