There is nothing lower in the black community, than a snitch.
So not only has Sharpton been bamboozling black people for decades with his race-pimping, according to this report, Sharpton has been the FBI’s “bsnitch.”
Sharpton became an informant after he was caught on tape with a drug kingpin discussing cocaine deals, and the feds threatened him with charges unless he flipped and snitched on Mafia acquaintances, according to The Smoking Gun. In an interview with the Daily News on Monday, Sharpton disputed much of the report, saying he turned to authorities after receiving threats from Gambino family member Joseph (Joe Bana) Buonanno and others.
This certainly explains how he has managed to stay out of prison, particularly when he owed the IRS almost $1 million. Nice to have friends in high places, particularly if you were a dope dealing fraud of a “reverend.”
