Posted on 12/13/2007 9:19:49 AM PST by stm
NEW YORK Federal authorities have subpoenaed financial records and employees in an apparent probe of the Rev. Al Sharpton's 2004 presidential bid, nonprofit civil rights group, and for-profit businesses, a newspaper reported Thursday.
As many as 10 Sharpton associates were subpoenaed Wednesday to testify before a federal grand jury in Brooklyn Dec. 26, his lawyer told the Daily News.
They were told to provide investigators with financial records from the campaign and roughly six Sharpton-related businesses, as well as personal financial documents of Sharpton and his wife, the newspaper said.
The FBI and Internal Revenue Service are seeking the records, which go back to 2001, according to the Daily News.
A Sharpton spokeswoman did not immediately return phone calls or e-mail messages early Thursday.
An FBI agent who answered the phone at the agency's New York headquarters declined to comment, and an agency spokesman did not immediately return a telephone message. An IRS spokesman did not immediately return phone calls.

Oh damn! Sean Hannity will have one less scumbag to frequent his shows?
Good. Its about time.
Where were they when the Clintons were taking Chinese cash hand over fist ?
Al would look good in black and white stripes.
About a decade late ... but nonetheless a welcome bit of news.
Thanks for posting. Interesting.
And Farrakhan. Why not go after all of the three stooges? Maybe the Feds can make a case for them violating the civil rights of black people. I am sure MLK is spinning in his grave looking at what those three scumbags have done to his “dream”
This could get interesting! I will remain skeptical though until I hear more. Lest we forget.... Mr. Shakedown (the Rev. Jackson) is still in business after all kinds of alleged shenanigans.

I pinged several on this earlier, not sure if you saw it or not.
I guess the IRS is too busy for the high roller.
He’s an embarrassment
About 15 years late by my estimation.
I’ve said for 20 years that half of the Presidential candidates, and Sharpton specifically, are just in it for the contributions. I doubt Johnny Edwards pays $400 for a haircut when its on his dime.
All the big ones are falling. First Bernie Ward and now this.
There are going to have to make the jail cells larger in the Federal pen.
If they Seize everything, would Al be “disenfranchised”?
