Mark Levin: Why isn’t Al Sharpton in federal prison?

Al Sharpton has a ton of debt, but part of that debt is millions of dollars he owes to the IRS:

FREE BEACON – MSNBC’s Al Sharpton is reeling in debt and back taxes. The liberal provocateur owes nearly $1 million to creditors and the federal government as a result of his failed bid for the 2004 Democratic presidential nomination. His campaign’s unpaid bills exceed $888,000, according to federal filings.

It is unclear why Sharpton has not paid his creditors. He does not lack for income. …

Sharpton, who has endorsed President Barack Obama’s calls for taxing the rich, has his own tax issues. He owed the IRS $2.6 million in income taxes in December 2011, as well as almost $900,000 in New York state taxes.

Mark Levin wants to know why Al Sharpton isn’t in federal prison. He notes that many of us couldn’t get away with this, so why should Al Sharpton?

As much as I think that Sharpton is a crook, why would anyone say that he’s a liberal? What has he done that’s considered liberal? He’s a just pro-black organizer and opportunist.

USA land of laws, pardon me while I laugh for half an hour. Double standards as blatant as day and night, Congress exempting themselves from laws they pass but hold us too. Elected officials that should be in jail and a President that is a fraud. How can we say we are a Nation of laws when the world laughs in our face with the proof that’s needed to do just that.

Why isn’t Obama, Holder, and the rest in prison.

Congress let this happen, by allowing a foreigner to usurp the White House.

Why I’m a Conservative (after listening to Mark Levine)

(Mark is taking a call from a liberal Barney Frank sound-alike guy:)

Mark: So what does raising taxes have to do with cutting spending and reducing the national debt?

Barney Fwank: That’s why you-wah still a tawk show host and not a pwacticing attuh-knee.

Mark: But I am still a practicing attorney. Are you still sitting on a cucumber?

(The Democrats kneeling under the skirts of their Communists masters serve feces to their membership and and tell them it it’s whipped cream. I wonder who will fill the hole in the Democratic Party when Bah-knee-Fwank goes back into private prostitution?)

He’s not in jail because, thus far, the left has been successful with their race hustling. In the past, the majority of the population would rather give a black man a “pass” than risk being labeled a racist. Hopefully, voters in 2012 will not be tripping over themselves to cast their vote for the Derelict In Chief in order to *prove* they aren’t a racist.

The saddest thing here is that most of us know why Sharpton isn’t in prison, and why other clearly bad people like Farrakhan and Black Panther members aren’t in prison for obvious crimes and threats and tax evasion that would land any of the rest of us there for a very long time. It’s all skin color and the political party they affiliate with. Period. Honestly, that’s all it truly is.

Hmm…I wonder how many new IRS agents can we hire for 2.6 million?

Not only can liberals like Sharpton rely on the Dems in power to protect him, he can also rely on the Republicans to be too chicken sh*t terrified to go after him because they know the sh*t storm it would cause. The outrageous outrage that any attempt to hold liberals accountable no matter what they do. This is nothing new. This has been going on for 40 years or more. Jane Fonda should be rotting in a federal prison for treason. She went to North Vietnam, was photographed sitting at one of their anti-aircraft guns that were used to shoot down our planes. She had a smile on her face. She colluded with the enemy by meeting with POW’s in captivity and promoting the enemies agenda. Hell, she probably should have been executed, but life in prison would have been something. John Kerry has no business being a United States… Read more »

Why do we keep doing this in the form of questions? Every blogger should be saying. Put Sharpton in prison! We should be way past asking questions in a NUMBER of things. Like, there is no money in the government for the salary of CZARS! Anyone who writes bad checks as a habit goes to jail (most govt employees). Let’s start making statements and quit all the wondering about the things we KNOW!

Al Sharpton will go to jail after his job is done. The WH needs him now to divide the Nation and to get the Black American votes if possible. Poor Al, he really believes that he belongs to the “New Elite” but the truth is that he is toast and Jesse as well. After the election Obama will have more “flexibility” to get rid of useful idiots……….if he wins….so Holder will go and tell Al and Jesse that the President needs more space……..oops! the mic is hot!

He’s not in prison because he’s a black liberal. If it was Herman Cain he would have been buried under the prison.

With all that debt, I’m surprised Obama didn’t appoint him head of something. Cordial Racial Relations Czar, that’s it.

Did the Republicans ever do anything to stop him when they were in control of Congress and the White House.

When Holder leaves, another will take is place. We live in the illusion of nation of laws.

Soon the the IRS will be able to revoke our passports and ability to travel for delinquent taxes. This will be at their discretion, no due process of law. As the author of this article notes, “even pedophiles go in front of a judge before losing their passports”

Don’t forget the new powers the IRS will have in being the “collectors & enforcers” for Obamacare.

As for Sharpton-as long as he is on the Obama message, is agitating, is starting flame wars, his monetary indiscretions will be quietly overlooked.

Yep. The elites will not be affected because it is at the sole discretion of an IRS clerk.

Note that the Republicans support this bill. It also includes black boxes for private cars and cutting off access to financial institutions.

Almost 1700 pages and no one has read it. Who wrote it?

Why isn’t Al Sharpton federal prison?

Simply stated,because of his race and connections.

Not really-

It’s because of his politics. I think we’re Cuba, and we didn’t even notice it.

Edit: Well maybe it’s connections too (Holder). He didn’t dare stand up in court against the almighty (government).
