The faux Reverend and MSNBC Host Al Sharpton is always talking about the rich needing to pay more taxes…it’s time for them to pay their fair share. Here’s an idea before he discusses others paying higher taxes how about serial race-baiter pay his own taxes.
The NY Post reported on Sunday that Sharpton, along with his nonprofit National Action Network and two for-profit firms he runs, have $4.7 million in outstanding debt and liens, according to federal and state tax records.
Among the debts include $806,875 that Sharpton owes the state, along with $2.6 million in federal liens against him for unpaid personal income taxes, the Post stated.
Recent filings showed the National Action Network owed $813,576 to the federal government at the end of 2012, and his company Rev-Al Communications owes $447,826 to the state, while the Bo-Spanky Consulting firm has $18.21 in outstanding debt, according to the Post.
Bo-Spanky Consulting? Forgetting the taxes for a moment because it’s only 18 bucks. Would you ever hire a consulting firm called Bo-Spanky Consulting?
According to the only preacher I know who doesn’t believe in the Commandment about not bearing false witness the records are wrong he has been paying down his debt.
Sharpton told the Post he’s paying down the debts according to negotiated agreements.
“It’s significantly less. It’s nowhere near the millions of dollars. We have totally lived up to our agreement with them,” Sharpton the Post. “It’s being paid down.”
Oh and its not just taxes:
The Post reported that Sharpton’s recent Federal Election Commission filing shows an outstanding balance of $208,000 with the Federal Election Commission for improperly taking campaign money and government matching funds during his 2004 presidential bid.
I wonder if it was a “regular Joe”who owed all that money instead of the instigator of two anti-Semitic pogroms and adviser to President Obama, would there be a prison sentence involved instead of a claim of paying off the debt.
