    Garner’s daughter on Sharpton: ‘He’s all about the money’

    By Kevin Sheehan and Carl Campanile

    February 24, 2015 | 12:01am





    Al Sharpton is all about the Benjamins, a daughter of police chokehold victim Eric Garner claims in a bombshell videotape.

    Erica Snipes tees off on the reverend as interested primarily in money during a secretly recorded conversation by controversial conservative activist James O’Keefe’s group, Project Veritas.

    One of O’Keefe’s investigators poses as a Garner supporter with a hidden camera 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.

    “He’s about money with you?” the undercover asks.

    “Yeah,” Snipes responds.

    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.

    “She started attacking me. ‘Oh, I see that you got this flier out, how come you didn’t add the logo?’ ’’ Snipes said.

    The undercover then asks, “They want their logo on your fliers?”

    “Instead of me, he wants his face in front,” Snipes says, referring to Sharpton

    “But it’s not about them, it’s about your dad,” the undercover says.

    “Exactly,” Snipes responds.

    “Al Sharpton paid for the funeral. She’s trying to make me feel like I owe them,” she adds.

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

    “No, I didn’t say that I think Al Sharpton is all about the money,” she said.

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

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

    “They’re splicing and dicing stuff together. It was a distortion. Erica is a sincere victim. She was not trying to infer anything with me,” Sharpton said of the secret recording.

    Sharpton said the premise of the criticism is flat wrong. He said NAN helps families, including paying for funerals, and does not take money from them. He said Snipes’ sister, Emerald, now works for NAN.

    Moreover, he said, NAN organizes rallies after receiving legal permits from the city and therefore requests that its logo be put on fliers for events it sponsors.

    In the video, Sharpton is also criticized by leaders and supporters involved in the Michael Brown-police shooting case in Ferguson, Mo., and the Trayvon Martin shooting in Florida, according to the Project Veritas videotapes.

    Jean Petrus, a Brooklyn businessman who attended a recent Trayvon Martin Foundation fund-raiser in Florida, is also seen criticizing Sharpton in the secretly taped video.

    “He knows how to make money and get money. They’re shakedown guys to me. You know, let’s call it what it is, they’re shakedown,” he says in the video.

    Petrus told The Post Monday night that he never consented to an interview and considers himself a “friend of Sharpton.”

    “It was an entrapment situation,” Petrus said. “It’s really underhanded.”

    Bishop Calvin Scott of Believers Temple in Ferguson, also raps Sharpton in the video.
    “To some degree, he sort of incites people for the wrong reason,” the bishop says. “I’m in the gathering. He got them all fired up. But I just sense this is not the way you want to go.”

    Sharpton dismissed the criticism, saying he went to Ferguson at the request of Brown’s family

    “I condemned the violence in Ferguson,” he said.

    The Post attempted to contact all the subjects in the Veritas video documentary. Two responded.

    Lawyer Darryl Parks, who is involved with the Trayvon Martin Foundation, said “there may be a little truth in that” when asked in a secret recording whether Sharpton is “all about his money.”

    Parks Monday night told The Post that he was “totally misconstrued” by a woman who misrepresented herself as a donor willing to give $50,000 to the foundation. He said it was a lengthy interview taken out of context.

    “This is operating under false disguise. It’s nothing but hogwash,” said Parks, who stressed he supports Sharpton,

    Another subject, Vivian Dudley of One Outreach Ministry in Ferguson, said in the video that she was “not quite sure what Al Sharpton did” when he visited there following Brown’s death. She confirmed that two people identifying themselves as documentarians openly interviewed her.

    “They asked me about Sharpton. I don’t have anything bad to say about anybody,” Dudley said Monday night.

    Other subjects did not respond or could not be reached for comment.

    Why would Jim Garner's family worry about Weird Al Sharpton?

    The one clown is saying it was an entrapment situation. They made him say those things. They framed him. He's probably groveling at Al's feet today.

    I've noticed that talk has begun about which candidates will be entering the primaries for the 2016 presidential election.

    Will the self-appointed president Jesse and vice president Rev Al of Black America be running unopposed again this time around?

    Looks like the worm is starting to turn on the second of these "pious" self-aggrandizing, money-grabbing corporate extortionists. Better late than never!

    Two things come to mind...

    -Do we really need to hear that Sharpton is all about the money? Isn't that like breaking a story that water is wet and fire is hot?

    -It's pretty shitty to secretly record the daughter of a dead guy shortly after his death and get her to say something bad about Sharpton, then release the tape of her saying it to the world. That's just a really gutterbug lowlife thing to do. Especially for a completely non-news story like "Sharpton is about the $$"

    Hopefully the mainstream press like CNN run with this story, but I doubt it.

    This is the truth about why Al Sharpton is as big as he is today:
    Politicians are mostly all scum and they are all in it for themselves. Politics is a racket just to make money. They can't trust normal people when they do business.
    Enter Al Sharpton. Sharpton is made from the same cloth. Politicians and Al are both corrupt and can trust each other- that is why they use and let each other exist.

    So the next time a politician needs to make believe he is yielding to minorities their first thought is to call Al. They can work with them- a relatively small payoff absolves them of their sins.
    The same thing with the Church. For millennia kings, politicians and aristocracy paid the church to absolve them of their sins and make them look good.
