Families of Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Michael Brown: Al Sharpton exploited our tragedy (Video)

Families of Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Michael Brown: Al Sharpton exploited our tragedy (Video)

James O’ Keefe and his Project Veritas have done it again. This time they interviewed Eric Garner’s daughter, Trayvon Martin’s father and Michael Brown’s lawyer and they all had the same complaint about the faux Reverend Al Sharpton: that he exploited their personal tragedy to enrich himself and his National Action Network.

Now no one should be surprised to learn that Sharpton is a crook, but it is surprising (and refreshing) to hear that he’s considered a crook by the people he “cheated.”

Below is the interview wirh Eric Garner’s daughter Erica Snipes. The transcript follows:

“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.
