• Al “Show Me The Money” Sharpton Defensive After Latest Video Exposing Him Surfaces

    With a major bombshell that was dropped on Monday that Al Sharpton is being sued for racial discrimination, it appears that things are just getting worse for the disgraced TV host.

    In a damning videotape (above) that was released early Tuesday, the daughter of Eric Garner, Erica Snipes, claims that the Reverend is more interested in money than racial justice, and can be seen saying “He’s about this,” and rubs her fingers together to symbolize money.

    NY Post reported that James O’Keefe, a citizen journalist, led an undercover investigation for his group Project Veritas, which shed some light on who the real Al Sharpton is.

    O’Keefe’s investigators can be seen talking to people who were involved in protests surrounding the deaths of Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin and Eric Garner.

    And when they thought no one was watching, they unleashed a bevy of information regarding their personal opinions of Sharpton, sometimes even calling him and the National Action Network “shakedown guys”.

    In the video, Sharpton is also criticized by leaders and supporters involved in the Michael Brown police shooting case in Ferguson, Mo., and the Trayvon Martin shooting in Florida, according to the Project Veritas videotapes.

    “He knows how to make money and get money. They’re shakedown guys to me. You know, let’s call it what it is, they’re shakedown,” he says in the video.

    Sharpton called the story “misleading” and denied the allegations, but it’s hard to believe the man when all of the evidence continues to pile up against him.

    Plus, it’s Al Sharpton we’re talking about. He’s been lying for decades.

    The Garner family has backpedaled from the daughter’s comments, even though those comments were caught in an honest moment, not a planned press release.

    Eric Garner’s mother, Gwen Carr, and his widow, Esaw Snipes-Garner issued a statement on the video.

    “As the mother and head of the estate of Eric Garner, and the widow of Eric Garner, let us be clear: We reached out and asked for help and assistance from Rev. Al Sharpton and National Action Network in the wake of Eric’s death. National Action Network and Rev. Al Sharpton have honored all of our requests, including covering the expenses of Eric’s funeral,” the statement said. “We believe that their involvement is solely based on their commitment for justice for Eric and our family. It is National Action Network’s policy that they do not accept monies or even reimbursement from victim’s families.”
