Sharpton angered by federal inquiry

December 14, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

The Rev. Al Sharpton angrily denounced federal authorities for investigating him and his civil rights organization, suggesting that the Justice Department was retaliating against him for his civil rights advocacy.

"I have probably been under every investigation known to man, and I can't remember a time that I've not been under investigation," Sharpton said at the Harlem headquarters of his civil rights organization.

Sharpton, 53, called a news conference after reports emerged of a federal probe into his finances. The U.S. attorney's office in Brooklyn declined to comment.
