Undercover video investigator James O’Keefe, and his organization Project Veritas, have emerged with a new video, this time focusing on those who have associated with Al Sharpton and his National Action Network (NAN).
“It’s all about the money” says Bishop Calvin Scott, of the Believers Temple in Ferguson, MO. “He incites people for the wrong reason.” Another Sharpton associate, Jean Petrus, a donor to the Trayvon Martin Foundation, says Sharpton “Knows how to make money and get money. They’re shakedown guys to me. Let’s call it what it is.”

Other people involved in the remembrance of Trayvon also distance themselves from Sharpton, including Travon’s father, Tracy Martin. They recently purged all Sharpton imagery from the foundation’s website.
Erica Garner, daughter of Eric Garner, claims that one of the Sharpton’s organizers, Cynthia Davis, attacked her for not including the NAN logo on a series of flyers involving Eric Garner. “Instead of me, he wants his face in front of it. Al Sharpton paid for the funeral. She’s trying to make me feel like I owe them.” One of Erica Garner’s friends says “They [NAN] need them [Garner family] in a way to fund raise.”
“He’s like this” says Erica Garner, as she rubs her fingers together to indicate money.
Other community and church members in Ferguson, MO, back up the assertion that Sharpton was all about the money, and other than give a couple of speeches, couldn’t really name anything positive that he had done for their community.
