    Sharpton secretly worked as FBI mob informant: report

    Sharpton secretly worked as FBI mob informant: report | New York Post

    Meet Al Sharpton, “Confidential Informant No. 7.”

    The longtime agitator, civil-rights activist and TV host was exposed Monday as an alleged former key FBI informant whose tips helped take down some of the biggest names in New York Mafia history.

    The Rev. Al launched his sensational secret life as a paid mob snitch in the mid-1980s, pressured to cooperate after being ensnared in a developing drug sting, according to a bombshell report by thesmokinggun.com.
    Says a lot for the type of connections the "Reverend" had. Thanks to a sting operation that linked him to a drug ring, the FBI negotiated with Sharpton to give up his mob buddies. There's more to his past than just Tawana Brawley apparently.

    And this guy can be heard screaming at the camera every night on his own show on MSNBC.

    Remarkable that anyone, other than MSNBC, would acknowledge Al Dullton working for them.

    Heya CJ. Think those who he helped bring down ever forgot about him or knew he was the snitch? Do you think they are waiting until he is officially out of the Cameras eye, before they decide to have little talk with him?

    Once he can't hide behind the Democrats and TV.....wonder what will ever become of him.

    I would strongly recommend reading the entire article in The Smoking Gun, it is absolutely fascinating and extensively researched. Takes awhile, it's a long article, but it's so interesting that it is hard to put down. You learn a lot about how much the East Coast mob is into. Much of the indictment of Sharpton is near the end.

    My conclusion was that this article may not be good for Sharpton's health.

    Yeah as usual.....since it was NY Post referencing another Right?


    The Rev. Al Sharpton says a report that he spied on New York Mafia figures for the FBI in the 1980s is old news.

    Sharpton spoke Tuesday about the story posted Monday on the website The Smoking Gun that said he had recorded conversations with mobsters.

    The website said Sharpton worked with a police-FBI task force. The site posted dozens of pages of documents that it said showed Sharpton's dealings with mob figures.

    Sharpton said he went to the FBI when he was threatened by mobsters in the music business.

    He says he cooperated with the FBI but didn't consider himself an informant.....snip~

    Good afternoon MMC - I try not to think much about big Al Dullton - he'd actually be pretty good as a "plant" - nobody would suspect the bat-**** crazy idiot racist fool of being able to pull it off.

    Come on now, don't go teasing us this way.
