If you’re tax cheat Al Sharpton it does indeed pay to have friends in high places, and of course being seen publicly rubbing shoulders with the likes of President Obama and New York’s Mayor De Blasio has many additional perks other than evading tax’s, such as dipping into the donation “basket” and giving yourself a 71% pay raise.

Last year Sharpton’s National Action Network (NAN), group drew a record $6.9 million in donations which can be attributed to both De Biasio’s election and Sharpton’s role within the mayors administration as an “adviser” and then elevated further within the inner circle of the mayor, after the death of Eric Garner, and earning him a seat next to the Police Commissioner Bill Bratton, at several high-profile press briefings.

In April, four months after his pal De Blasio took office, some 5,000 people attended NAN’s 2014 conference headlined by Obama and attended by the mayor, Gov. Cuomo and then-US Attorney General Eric Holder. It was NAN’s biggest fund-raiser of the year.

Tax filings show that  Sharpton’s pay increased from $241,545 in 2013 to $412,644, including a bonus of $64,400.

Not to shabby for a guy still “race hustling” corporations out of hundreds of thousands of dollars for the promise of not instigating and or creating racial unrest…


Does Sharpton belong behind bars for tax evasion?
