Rev. Al Sharpton would not admit the Tawana Brawley rape case he drove to national prominence was a hoax on Morning Joe Tuesday, saying he had no regrets getting involved and would respond the same way if a woman today made similar claims.
Brawley claimed she was kidnapped and gang-raped by white men, including a police officer and local prosecutor, in 1987. The story became a national sensation and was a career-maker for Sharpton, who was largely unknown at the time.
But after a long investigation revealed Brawley’s claims to be false, it was dropped. -Washington Free Beacon Staff

"If Donald Trump is the nominee, I'm open to support anyone, while I'm also reserving my ticket out of here if he wins."

“The media is hurting us by instilling fear into our patrons that come every day,” Chris of Hollerbach’s Café in Sanford told Pelosi. “They’re afraid to walk on the streets of Sanford alone now because the media is telling them it is not safe. I think when Al Sharpton got his hands on it, it all blew up. It was just opening Pandora ’s Box. There’s no race war. There’s no cars on fire. It’s just good food and music.”

Sandy Rubenstein was cleared of a rape accusation Monday, but not before one final, potentially humiliating revelation emerged about his ex-pal Al Sharpton.

"We’re going to see that this cracker suffers. Reverend Sharpton is on it."
