Video: Sharpton All About the Money, Eric Garner's Daughter Says

VIDEO: Sharpton All About the Money, Eric Garner's Daughter Says

Al Sharpton is all about the Benjamins, a daughter of Eric Garner, who died after a confrontation with NYPD officer last year, claims in a bombshell videotape.

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.

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.

In an interview with The New York Post on Monday night, Snipes denied that she had accused Sharpton of being a money-grubber.

But she stood by her criticism of Davis, the NAN director, who she claimed tried to block her from attending a protest at the Staten Island Museum against mass incarceration.

Sharpton on Monday night accused Project Veritas of “exploiting” Snipes and a dispute within the Garner family.

This should not come as a surprise to anyone. If you watch, when Sharpton's Charlatans show up, tensions increase, violence increases, riots are incited, hatred is encouraged. Never do you see them pushing for peace, asking for conversation, or trying to get people to calm down and work together. If race is not brought into a situation you can count on the Charlatans to push it to the front. Remember, if peace and cooperation break out Sharpton doesn't make any money. Do you want to work together or make Sharpton more money; they can't both be done? He doesn't want to help anyone but himself, he is not there to do good, he is there to encourage hate so he can keep making money. He is a man with lighter burning down lives so his company can keep selling fire extinguishers, nothing more. HE DOESN'T CARE ABOUT YOU.

ftrnr .........if that is all true, how is it possible that he keeps being invited to the white house? I mean surly this guy must be squeaky clean with an impeccable record before he sit next to the POTUS and AG. Something just isn't adding up here.

The Right Rev. Al is aptly played on SNL by Keeynn.
Maybe they should offer to cast the real deal ?????
