Sharpton Explains Tax Cheat Allegations: ‘People Don’t Like… That Obama’s The President’

The Rev. Al Sharpton said a front-page New York Times report saying that he and his nonprofit organization owed more than $4 million in state and federal taxes was “misleading and totally out of context,” and told reporters his organization actually owed about $800,000.

Sharpton said he was not sure how much he personally owed because it was still being negotiated, and questioned why the issue was raised now, suggesting it was motivated in part by hostility toward Bill de Blasio and Barack Obama.

In a 30-minute press conference at his Harlem office which ended with him abruptly walking out on a roomful of reporters, Sharpton said, “The National Action Network’s tax debt as of December of 2013 was a little over $400,000. ...On that, they want $400,000 in penalties. The board’s position at our national convention was that why should we have to pay 100 percent if we can knock it down. But we continued to pay the monthly installment while we did.”

Asked about the combined amount in taxes that he and his organization owed—$4.5, million according to the Times— Sharpton said, “How could I owe what you originally owed in 2008. Then that would have meant we paid none of the installments and that we didn’t put up the $1 million that everybody reported.”

Seems like if there was a popularity contest about now, there would sure be some Big Losers!!!

Any man who would betray his own people for filthy lucre has no honor, no integrity, and no true friends. I pity the man, for the whole world knows him for what he is and for what he is not! "Just show me da money!"

What divinity school did Sharpton go to again?? Dope peddler, Federal snitch to lighten charges against him, pimping, receiving stolen goods; not to mention Tawana Brawley who he coerced to lie "white men raped me", and then she ratted him out. Jesse "Pastor of the Playboy Mansion" Jackson, and Sharpton are just as Booker T Washington said, "only in it for the money".Both should be in jail.The only things keeping him out are His Muslim puppet friend,the so called President, and the lying Democrats.

Jerry, you might add the lying media as well! Just a thought ! I use to drink Coke till coke paid millions to Jackson to keep he's mouth closed On employing mostly blacks back in the 70's or 80's not sure on the
years ?

Well, Al, if you haven't PAID ANY taxes since 2008, you probably owe MORE THAN a "mere" $4 MILLION.  You must take bookkeeping/tax filing lessons from "chithead" rangel, or do you just employ the same fake tax accountants?

With this Admin. There will never be truth so why expect it.

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
