Sharpton Received Over $1M in Compensation from National Action Network

Al Sharpton got over $1 million from the National Action Network, the nonprofit organization where he serves as president and CEO.

Following an analysis of the tax filings of the National Action Network by The New York Post, it’s reported, “Sharpton got a $324,000 salary — 32% higher than his 2017 pay — in addition to a $159,596 bonus and $563,352 in ‘other compensation.’”

In response, the National Action Network explained the payment to Sharpton included compensation that was owed to him over the years where he wasn’t fully paid.

Following the story on Sharpton, The New York Post editorial board wrote the nonprofit should be investigated by the New York State attorney general.

The Post editorial noted that to be consistent, New York State Attorney General Letitia James should investigate the National Action Network as she did with the Donald J. Trump Foundation.

In addition to running the National Action Network, Sharpton is the host of “Politics Nation” on MSNBC.

Sharpton recently commented on former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick regarding his recent workout for a number of NFL teams.

Just last year, Sharpton’s organization paid “him $531,000 for the rights to his life story,” and according to New York State, “still owes nearly $700,000 in back taxes.”

The same scrutiny over the Donald J. Trump Foundation should apply to Sharpton’s National Action Network nonprofit organization.
