Letter: Sharpton’s daughter learning from master

Sharpton’s daughter learning from master

Al Sharpton’s daughter Dominique has learned from the master. She is suing New York City for $5 million for a sprained ankle after tripping on a sidewalk in October 2014. She said she has permanent pain, but her own social media posts show her hiking up a mountain in Bali, Indonesia.

Al Sharpton’s critics accuse him of using threats of protests and boycotts against large corporations to get donations. Some of the companies paying him are McDonald’s, Verizon, General Motors, Macy’s and Pfizer.

If his daughter receives $5 million, she should use it to pay off the $4.5 million that her father owes the IRS in unpaid taxes. How can he live the way he does and still owe that amount? The average person would be hounded to death by the tax collector.
