    AS AL SHARPTON rose, SO DID HIS UNPAID TAXES...New York Times

    http://www.nytimes.com/2014/11/19/ny...ence.html?_r=0

    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.
    Liberalism—dividing up the EARNED wealth of honest, hard working and ingenious AMERICANS and giving it to the leeches who would rather waste their worthless lives living off the government teat.

    Lauryn Hill began serving a three-month prison sentence in Connecticut yesterday for failing to pay over $1 million in taxes over the past decade, reports the Associated Press. The Grammy-winning singer is serving her time in a minimum security prison with dorm-style living arrangements and will be expected to work jobs such as maintenance, landscaping and food service.

    Beanie Sigel Released From Jail Following Two Years for Tax Evasion, Narcotics | Billboard

    Rapper Beanie Sigel was released from jail Thursday following a two-year federal sentence for tax evasion on more than $700,000 over six years and a congruently served sentence on narcotics possession charges.
    Ron Isley, Ja Rule, Chuck Berry etc. are all examples of rich black people who served prison sentences just like the "crackers" Hogwash is referencing. I suspect that the reason Hogwash makes such outlandish claims about what happens to "crackers" and doesn't happen to black people is that he doesn't actually know any black people to begin with.

    The irony of someone busting out the victim card while complaining about Sharpton is too much.

    he adamantly supports a tax increase on the wealthy, yet won't pay his "fair share"?....imagine that.

    it would be funny to see him go to prison , but he has too many friends in the establishment for that to happen

    I agree. It's patently laughable that he thinks white people go to jail for some crimes and black people don't. It would be contrary to every single statistics out there.

    What is there to debate other than ~"crackers go to jail and blacks don't"? I think that's been thoroughly destroyed. We've explored the humor of playing the victim card while complaining about Sharpton. What else ya got?

    well i guess hijacking a discussion to focus on race baiting is quite fitting for a thread on the guy who does exactly that for a living... so i'll bow out
