Al Sharpton’s Failed 2004 Campaign For President Is Still Close To $1M In Debt

Published

on

Rev. Al Sharpton once ran for president — hilarious, right? — back in 2004 and his presidential campaign was a complete and total disaster. How much of a disaster was it? Well, it’s been fifteen years since he ran the campaign and it’s still $900,000 in debt.

Of course, Sharpton also hasn’t paid off his massive tax debts in a very long time, so perhaps the notion that this particular race baiting individual doesn’t pay his bills isn’t all that surprising.

Here’s more on this from Washington Examiner:

“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,” Sharpton told the New York Post over the weekend. “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.”

He added, “Even if I am not legally liable for it, I am certainly morally responsible.”

Sharpton is not personally on the hook for the money 15 years later. Instead, it’s his campaign committee and specifically his campaign treasurer, Andrew Rivera, who are responsible.

Jerri Ann Henry, a consultant with an extensive work history with campaigns and PACS said, “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. 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.”

This isn’t the first time Sharpton’s campaign has run into trouble. He also ran into some problems with the Federal Election Commission back in 2009 for violating campaign finance laws and agreed to pay $285,000 in civil penalties.

No matter how you slice up the responsibility, since Sharpton ran, he should be the one finding some way to pay off the debt he owes. It’s time for him to learn what it means to truly take personal responsibility for your own actions really means.

Pro-Trump Georgia Democrat Says Kamala Harris Is ‘The Wrong Person’ To Win The Black Vote

Published

on

Georgia Democratic state Rep. Vernon Jones, who is bold and brave enough to have tossed his support behind President Donald Trump, stated that Democrats thought Sen. Kamala Harris, who has been announced as Joe Biden’s vice presidential running mate, would “help them save the Black vote, but that was the wrong person for that job to do that.” Jones made these controversial statements on the Wednesday morning edition of “Fox & Friends,” just one day after Biden made the announcement concerning Harris. One of the interesting facts about Harris the left hasn’t addressed yet is her deep background with law enforcement. Here is more from Fox News: “This was a good day for President Trump” Jones said. He then pointed out that “Trump has a better record on helping black men and women than Kamala Harris has, than Joe Biden has and as this story gets told more and more African-Americans are coming his way and that is what they’re afraid of.” “She flip-flops,” Jones added on Wednesday. He also accused her of saying “anything she can to get elected.” “Joe Biden has the right string, but the wrong yo-yo,” he went on to say, pointing out that Harris is “liberal.” “She accused Biden of being biased when it came to busing,” Jones added. He’s absolutely spot on about her flip-flopping on the issues. Whatever the popular take on a leftist agenda item happens to be at the moment, that’s the stance she’s going to take. Period. She’s an opportunist to the core. There are no principles, not even leftist ones, to which she seems beholden to, and that’s dangerous. Someone like that is easy to control, to manipulate. To use as a mouthpiece for agenda items passed down from those in power in the Democratic Party. And make no…

Biden’s VP Pick Kamala Harris Actively Promoted Group That Provided Bail For Alleged Violent Criminals

Published

on

Sen. Kamala Harris, who has been tapped to be Joe Biden’s vice presidential running mate on Tuesday, supported and promoted an organization that helped to provide bail money for violent criminals who were arrested during the riots that exploded after the death of George Floyd. That same group has now gone on to put up bail for an alleged murderer and a previously convicted rapist. A report from FOX 9 on Monday revealed that the group, Minnesota Freedom Fund, has in recent weeks bailed out people like Darnika Floyd, who was charged with second-degree murder after allegedly killing a friend by stabbing them to death. They also provided bail support for Christopher Boswell, who is currently facing charges of sexual assault and kidnapping. The MFF helped put up $100,000 for Floyd and $350,000 for Boswell. Check out the details from Fox News: MFF received about $35 million in the wake of Floyd’s death — which came after a Minneapolis Police Department officer knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes — with at least some of it coming from a number of Biden staffers who donated to the group and then tweeted about it. And Harris, D-Calif., a former prosecutor who served as the attorney general of California for six years, promoted the fund herself in a June 1 tweet, telling her followers that the group would be able to help protesters swept up in clashes with police as unrest gripped Minneapolis. https://twitter.com/KamalaHarris/status/1267555018128965643 But MFF, which received so much money amid the unrest that it asked people to start donating to other groups instead, didn’t just bail out protesters who may have been victims of overzealous policing. FOX 9 also reported that Jaleel Stallings, who is accused of shooting at police during the May riots, was bailed out by MFF…
