Can I start with the final straw and work my way backwards?
While I was away on vacation last week, Al Sharpton, one of the worst tax scofflaws in New York, endorsed Eric Schneiderman for the state's top law enforcement office. No big deal. Any one of the four other Democrats running for att ... More >>
Thank God for Rush Limbaugh.
So long as he's calling George Steinbrenner a "cracker" who "made a lot of African-Americans millionaires," there's still a white guy with power in America that Al Sharpton is free to attack. So yesterday, "Silent Al" found his voice and called Rush "repugnant." ... More >>
Al Sharpton's rush to issue a statement this week denouncing Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney's use of the n-word in a magazine interview has once again made him a potential kingmaker.

By Jana KasperkevicNothing much surprises us anymore about the charmed life of Reverend Al Sharpton, but even he must have wondered in recent weeks just how he gets away with it all.

I owe Al Sharpton an apology. He was in rare form Monday night on NY1, ranting as if he had turned the clock back to his old sweat-suit days (NY1 actually ran classic footage of him in his favorite, all-black outfit). He took several runs at me during this extended interview and did manage to get on ... More >>
The governor of New York is having lunch today with a tax dodger who owes the state nearly a million dollars. The mayor is chowing down, too. Tomorrow the vice president will wrap his arms around the same celebrity cheat who stiffed the IRS for nearly $2 million.
David Paterson, Mike Bloomberg and ... More >>
The odd-ball marriage of Al Sharpton and schools chancellor Joel Klein -- who have been teaming up to tout their version of education reforms since last summer-- resulted in a sweet $500,000 wedding gift for Sharpton's National Action Network, reports the Daily News' indefatigable Juan Gonzalez this ...
