Joe Scarborough Kisses Sharpton's Ass--Calls Him 'Great Example' --Nothing about WHY Sharpton snitched. Pathetic.

By Noah Rothman, Apr. 9, 2014,

In an extensive report based on documents uncovered by The Smoking Gun, MSNBC host Al Sharpton is named as a former mafia “associate” who was complicit in criminal acts. That ended when the Federal Bureau of Investigation approached Sharpton and solicited him to buy tens of thousands of dollars worth of cocaine, taped his interaction with an undercover agent, and forced him to “flip” after he indicated he was open to the proposal.

The documents allege that Sharpton went on to extort music labels for funds for his nonprofit organization and to maintain his connections with the mob, all while collecting information for the FBI which were later applied to indictments of several major organized crime figures. To MSNBC host Joe Scarborough, this story makes Sharpton a “great example to people.”

“I helped the government against guys that were in the music industry mobsters who threatened me,” Sharpton asserted on Morning Joe.

“Is that a bad thing?” Scarborough asked incredulously.

“You’re supposed to do that,” Sharpton replied.

He said that the FBI was attempting to “ensnare” him and his group in a plan to investigate the mafia’s ties to professional boxing, which is exactly what you would say about your voluntary association with law enforcement. In fact, the allegations in The Smoking Gun report indicate that Sharpton’s ties to boxing promoter Don King made him a target of interest to both the mob and to the FBI.

The Bureau allegedly sought his “help” by confronting him with a tape in which Sharpton indicated he was interested in purchasing $35,000 worth of cocaine.
“It’s a great example to people,” Scarborough says. “So, we’ve got that taken care of.”
