Al Sharpton Plunders Non-Profit, Stiffs the Tax Man
(Kennedy Smith is wanted in 57 states; serve him mai-tais and subpoenas @TheKennedySmith)
Al Sharpton, noted race-baiter, riot-starter and guy that beats Anderson Cooper in the ratings is experiencing technical difficulties:
Sharpton drew a $241,732 salary and perks that included first-class or charter air travel, tax filings show. He owes the IRS $2.6 million in income tax, and nearly $900,000 in state tax.
So that’s a cool $3.5 million he owes us. Well, why not advocate higher taxes if you’re not going to pay them anyway? As Leona Helmsley said, taxes are for little people. But the worst is yet to come:
And it is close to finished repaying the Peabody Hotel in Memphis $106,981 owed since 2008, when NAN skipped out on its bill after its annual convention, according to its 2010 audited financial statements.
He stiffed the Peabody Hotel? Those ducks aren’t going to feed themselves. Be kind to our web-footed friends. Somebody call PETA.
Bonus fact: Sharpton’s for-profit company is called Bo-Spanky Consulting, Inc. Which sounds totally legit and not a shake-down operation at all.
