Sharpton Paid $1 Million by His Own Charity in 2018
The race-baiting Rev. Al Sharpton received more than $1 million in 2018 from the nonprofit of which he is the president and CEO, tax filings reportedly show.
In 2018 Sharpton was paid $1,046,948 by the National Action Network (NAN), including “a $324,000 salary — 32% higher than his 2017 pay — in addition to a $159,596 bonus and $563,352 in ‘other compensation,’” according to a report from the New York Post.
NAN stated that the extra cash was to make up for the years from 2004 to 2017 when the scam artist didn’t get his full pay. NAN said it hired an executive compensation firm which calculated that he was owed $1.252 million. “Fifteen years, you are talking about since 2004 when I came back after running for president,” Sharpton protested. “For anybody else it would be laughable.”
“It’s a six-day-a-week job and several hours a day and when [the compensation firm] compared it to other companies, other nonprofits, that’s the salary that they would get,” Sharpton argued. As the Post notes, he still owes $698,470.99 in back taxes to New York state.
