After his great triumph in the Tawana Brawley case in New York in which he spotted the involvement of the Mafia and the Irish Republican Army, Sharpton descended on Los Angeles to help solve the Gates affair. Never mind that the Brawley case was a hoax. He is sure to use his remarkable skills to involve Gates with the Mafia and the IRA. He knows what plays well in the press; the music isn't much, but the words are funny.
