Tax Evader: Rev. Al Sharpton Owes $1.5 Million in Back Taxes
Apparently the Rev. Al Sharpton hasn't yet heard the part that says "..render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's." Earlier, Sharpton, a firm Barack Obama supporter, threatened lawsuits over the Democratic party's handling of Michigan and Florida delegates. The question now is; who'll pay for those court costs?
This isn't the first time Sharpton has been in trouble over his finances. His non-profit, National Action Network, has previously been under federal investigation for handling of funds, including donated monies.
One of Sharpton's staffers complained because federal agents came to her home and knocked on her door, asking to speak to her. In the tax evasion scandal, Sharpton is following his usual line: he's being picked on because he's an activist.
