Sharpton 'Donors' Hit With Subpoenas

Those companies that donated protection money to Al Sharpton, racial arsonist and good pal of Barack Obama, suddenly are facing a wave of subpoenas.

Of course, this will go nowhere as Sharpton has special priviliges and immunity from prosecution since he's a Democrat and has friends in high places.
The probe into the Rev. Al Sharpton's finances intensified this week, with the IRS sending out a flurry of subpoenas to his most generous corporate donors, The Post has learned.

Anheuser-Busch, the brewer of Budweiser and Michelob, confirmed yesterday that it received a federal subpoena in connection to its charitable giving to Sharpton's National Action Network.

"We have received a subpoena and are cooperating with the IRS," the company said in a statement.

Sharpton blasted the subpoena as a "fishing expedition" and said his donors are proud of their financial support. The St. Louis-based corporation donated between $100,000 and $499,000 to NAN in 2007 alone, according to its Web site, but declined further comment about its relationship with Sharpton. A knowledgeable source said several other corporate donors received or would soon receive subpoenas.
Sharpton himself, his business entities and his nonprofit civil-advocacy group owe millions in back taxes, documents show.

Personally, Sharpton owes $931,397 in federal taxes and $365,558 in New York City taxes, according to an IRS lien.
Makes you wonder how a guy can owe over a million dollars to the IRS and be walking free, no?

Ah, aren't double standards wonderful?

"That's not the Al Sharpton I knew," proclaimed Messiah Obama as he prepared more room under a very crowded bus.
