    Maybe that rabble-rouser, Al Sharpton should spend more time paying his damn taxes and less time causing more trouble around the United States...taxes that are being DENIED TO THE "POOR" because Al refuses to pay up. This according to the New York Times.

    Mr. Sharpton has regularly sidestepped the sorts of obligations most people see as inevitable, like taxes, rent and other bills. Records reviewed by The New York Times show more than $4.5 million in current state and federal tax liens against him and his for-profit businesses.

    And though he said in recent interviews that he was paying both down, his balance with the state, at least, has actually grown in recent years. His National Action Network appears to have been sustained for years by not paying federal payroll taxes on its employees.

    With the tax liability outstanding, Mr. Sharpton traveled first class and collected a sizable salary, the kind of practice by nonprofit groups that the United States Treasury’s inspector general for tax administration recently characterized as “abusive,” or “potentially criminal” if the failure to turn over or collect taxes is willful.

    Mr. Sharpton and the National Action Network have repeatedly failed to pay travel agencies, hotels and landlords. He has leaned on the generosity of friends and sometimes even the organization, intermingling its finances with his own to cover his daughters’ private school tuition.


    Or better still...go to PRISON for income tax evasion like we "crackers" do.
    Sharpton should pay his taxes just like every other responsible citizen. He is, after all, benefiting from all the public works that are paid by those taxes, and he needs to own up to his fair share, just like all the rest of us. No exceptions.

    It seems like just about every rich person has skeletons like this in their closets. They all cheat in order to get where they are.

    I agree, the rich should be made to pay their fair share like the rest of us. Ain't it great when ideologies agree?

    ... What an interesting position to take. Do you believe multiple women have been filling out police reports and claiming he assaulted them for decades because of political views he expressed 8-9 years ago at best?

    And that $4.75 million taxes he hasn't paid surely would pay for a lot of welfare for his poor mistreated black hero worshipers.

    Wesley Snipes? If prison is good enough for Wesley it's damn sure good enough for that PoS Sharpton.
    Al Sharpton makes a living misrepresenting the events around him for his own ideological and financial gain, he is most certainly a politician even though he may not hold a politician's seat.

    The simple fact of the matter is the best of intentions behind and all of the respect for the civil rights movement of yesterday have become perverted, self serving, money making, and political power schemes today under people like Sharpton. He represents the worst of ideology and stands for a flavor of racism that will end up in the history books.

    An activists job is to bring truth where lies are being told, not the other way around to inflame on tap.

    He does not "tell it like it is," he tells it the way he needs it to be for his own interests at the expense of others. An attitude that seems to land in so many aspects of his life. Including tax evasion.

    I've been reading through this thread to find a post that's completely on topic to respond to. Thanks for providing one.

    I don't like hypocrisy, and Sharpton has epitomized it here. This is the same asshole who accused Romney of not paying taxes for 10 years while at Bain (along with a few other assholes who made the same accusation).

    Of course, this runs right into the discussion as to what exactly does 'fair share' mean in each of these cases. But yes, everyone's shoulder should be on the common wheel, pushing.

    It get's worse. Far worse than just Sharpton.




    All these 'Hope and Change' guys. All these 'pay their fair share' guys. How rather liberal / progressive of them.
    I'm guessing it applies to everyone except themselves, which would be typical wouldn't it?

    So please tell me again, how it's the 1%'s that aren't paying their fair share? Aren't these guys all 1%ers?

    I wonder if Joe Biden reminds all these aides and staffers that they are not patriotic?
