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

Published

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.

What’s a billion dollars to a multi-billionaire? Probably nothing. But what’s a billion dollars to a man with an ego the size of Donald Trump’s? Probably a lot. That being said, the duly-elected POTUS didn’t care about losing money. He’s not dumb. He knew what he was getting in to when he ran declared his candidacy back in 2015. But losing a billion dollars is what can happen when you don’t take a salary or make any business deals for four solid years. From USA Today: WASHINGTON – The presidency appears to have cost Donald Trump more than $1 billion in wealth. Trump tumbled nearly 300 spots on Forbes’ billionaire rankings during his presidency, the magazine reported this week, with his estimated wealth falling from $3.5 billion to $2.4 billion during his four-year term. CONTINUED: That’s still good enough for 1,299th place on the magazine’s new billionaire list, down from 1,001st last year. The list is topped by a frequent political target of Trump: Amazon and Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos, whose wealth is tagged at $177 billion.

Report: Antifa Radicals Tried Burning Down Building with Federal Agents Inside (Watch)

You’d think this would be bigger news!!

What else is there to say about “antifa?” The radical group is comprised of anti-American children who don’t want to work and demand everything come free. They also don’t care how many innocent people die for their “cause,” either. Check this out, via Right Scoop: CNN only mentions Antifa when they’re arguing that Trump and Republicans believe in conspiracy theories about antifa. Otherwise, the group – which they think is an “idea” – is totally off their radar. Like last night, when they tried to burn down a federal building as part of their ongoing insurrection, CNN didn’t cover it. And still haven’t. In fact in the last year they’ve barely talked about violence in Portland, D.C., and elsewhere, except when they could blame it on conservatives. WATCH: https://twitter.com/TomasMorales_iv/status/1381163263992360960?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1381163263992360960%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fcnns-best-friends-at-antifa-tried-to-torch-a-federal-building-with-people-inside-in-portland-last-night-on-video%2F From Daily Caller: Former Vice President Joe Biden endorsed Antifa in a video announcing his presidential bid Thursday, characterizing the group as “courageous” and saying it’s wrong to draw a moral equivalence between white nationalist groups and those opposing them. The violent methods of Antifa are well documented. The nebulous group often uses these violent means against peaceful conservative speakers, benign free speech advocates, and even journalists.
