Sharpton's former chief of staff said he was roused at his Harlem home about 6:30 a.m. by two FBI agents who handed him a subpoena to bring the records to a federal grand jury the day after Christmas. (Merry Christmas Al. Maybe you and Benny Hinn can share some egg nog.)
Several employees of Sharpton's National Action Network also got wakeup subpoenas to testify before the Brooklyn panel. The FBI and IRS are investigating whether Sharpton improperly misstated the amount of money he raised during his 2004 White House run to illegally obtain federal matching funds.
This is a racist thing. If he were white this would not happen. The IRS is the Internal Racist Service. Anytime a black man gets more then a few bucks in his pocket it's time to launch an investigation. Let's march! Who's with me??? Hello........anyone.........
The Rev. Al Sharpton angrily denounced federal authorities Thursday for serving subpoenas on members of his civil rights organization, suggesting that the Justice Department was retaliating against him for his political activism.
