Al Sharpton Sells Rights to his Autobiography for a Cool $531,000… To His Own Charity
Al Being Al–
Al Sharpton sold right to his autobiography this week for a whopping $531,000… to his own charity!
And his charity can then turn around and sell the rights to Hollywood for a profit.
It’s a win-win proposition!
This is not the first time Al Sharpton has suffered a conflict of interest.
Sharpton was previously caught buying cocaine in an undercover FBI sting.
He then later became a mob rat.
The New York Post reported:
The Rev. Al Sharpton has found an eager buyer for the rights to his life story — his own charity.
The National Action Network agreed to pay the activist preacher $531,000 for his “life story rights for a 10-year period,” according to the non-profit’s latest tax filing, which was obtained by The Post.
NAN can apparently turn around and sell those rights to Hollywood or other takers at a profit, but neither the reverend nor the charity would identify what producers are waiting for such Sharpton content.
The document does not indicate when Sharpton, who is president of NAN, gets the cash, which is above and beyond the $244,661 he already pulled down in compensation from the group in 2017.
Sharpton also wouldn’t say when the cash would come in.
