Al Sharpton is all about the Benjamins, a daughter of police chokehold victim Eric Garner claims in a bombshell tape.
Erica Snipes tees off on the reverend as interested primarily in money during a conversation secretly recorded by controversial conservative activist James O’Keefe’s group, Project Veritas.
One of O’Keefe’s investigators with a hidden camera posed as a Garner supporter during a protest last month at the St. George Ferry Terminal on Staten Island.
“You think Al Sharpton is kind of like a crook in a sense?” the investigator is heard asking Garner’s oldest daughter.
“He’s about this,” Snipes replies, rubbing her fingers together.
“He’s about money with you?” the undercover asks.
“Yeah,” Snipes responds.
Snipes, 24, also complained that the Staten Island director of Sharpton’s National Action Network, Cynthia Davis, scolded her for handing out street fliers about her father’s case that did not include NAN’s logo.
“She started attacking me. ‘Oh, I see that you got this flier out, how come you didn’t add the logo?’ ’’ Snipes said.
The undercover then asks, “They want their logo on your fliers?”
“Instead of me, he wants his face in front,” Snipes says, referring to Sharpton
“But it’s not about them, it’s about your dad,” the undercover says.
“Exactly,” Snipes responds.
“Al Sharpton paid for the funeral. She’s trying to make me feel like I owe them,” she adds.
Apparently, Al Sharpton’s reputation as a race pimp-for-PR-and-profit never crossed her mind before this.
Sharpton was in Ferguson during the riots to mug for the cameras and incite more violence, he flung the race card when Charlie Rangel and Maxine Waters were investigated for their ethics violations, led the Tawana Brawley hoax, he was the key player in the violence during the 1991 Crown Heights riots following the death of a black kid who was accidentally hit by car driven by a Hasidic driver.
Wherever and whenever there’s an opportunity to exploit race victimology, Sharpton and his frequent side-kick Jesse Jackson make themselves available.
Now that Snipes has admitted knowing how Sharpton plays the game, what will she do about it, besides play along?
