Al Sharpton Takes $531,000 From His Own Charity For His “Life Story Rights”

Al Sharpton is back in the news. This time because he took half a million dollars from his own charity. Supposedly for the rights to his life story. Sounds a little sketchy, doesn’t it?

The New York Post reports:

Al Sharpton sells his life story rights for $531,000 — to his own charity

The Rev. Al Sharpton has found an eager buyer for the rights to his life story — his own charity.

The National Action Network agreed to pay the activist preacher $531,000 for his “life story rights for a 10-year period,” according to the non-profit’s latest tax filing, which was obtained by The Post.

NAN can apparently turn around and sell those rights to Hollywood or other takers at a profit, but neither the reverend nor the charity would identify what producers are waiting for such Sharpton content.

The document does not indicate when Sharpton, who is president of NAN, gets the cash, which is above and beyond the $244,661 he already pulled down in compensation from the group in 2017.

Sharpton also wouldn’t say when the cash would come in.

“What does that have to do with anything?” he said, speaking to The Post Saturday from South Africa, where he is hosting an MSNBC broadcast on the 100th anniversary of Nelson Mandela’s birth.

Doesn’t Sharpton still owe the government a ton of money in taxes? Perhaps he should pay that off first.
