Al Sharpton is “all about the money.” So says a daughter of Eric Garner, the New York man who died in police custody after he was arrested for illegally selling cigarettes. Sharpton made a point of putting himself front-and-center in the protest over Garner’s death.
An article in The New York Post describes other harsh criticisms of the preacher, race agitator and MSNBC show host in a new investigative video from Project Veritas: “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.”
Project Veritas, headed up by conservative filmmaker James O’Keefe, is known for producing provocative and highly controversial videos created largely from secret recordings where the subject doesn’t know the camera is rolling.
In the latest bombshell exposé, Garner’s daughter, Erica Snipes, was apparently recorded with a hidden camera during a protest in January.
“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.
The New York Post article quotes Sharpton as vehemently denying the charges, saying the basis of the criticism documented in the Project Veritas video is wrong.
“They’re splicing and dicing stuff together. It was a distortion.”
In advance of releasing this new video, conservative activist James O’Keefe told his Twitter followers that he felt this exposé to be so hot that he feared for his safety.
Then, after the video hit the YouTube channel of Project Veritas, O’Keefe noted the major media coverage in Sharpton’s backyard.
By clicking on the video above, you can watch the results of the Project Veritas investigation of Al Sharpton and judge for yourself whether the charges that Rev. Al is in it for himself ring true.
