Al Sharpton’s SUV impounded at La Guardia Airport

Can I get a witness?

The Rev. Al Sharpton tried to move heaven and earth yesterday to keep his SUV from being towed at La Guardia Airport — but no amount of preaching could stop Port Authority cops from impounding the vehicle.

An officer rolled up on the 2008 Lincoln Navigator at around 2 p.m. outside the Delta and US Airways terminal as the MSNBC host’s driver waited to pick him up in a clearly marked “no standing” zone, said PA Police spokesman Al Della Fave.

PAPD cop Oscar Ruiz asked the driver for his paperwork and quickly discovered that the SUV had a suspended registration “due to lack of insurance,” the spokesman said.

At that point, Sharpton emerged from the terminal after a flight from Washington, DC, and raised holy hell over the situation.

“He begins yelling, saying the cop was just doing this because of who he was,” a source said.

“Sharpton was adamant there was insurance,” the source said. “He said he was on the phone with his lawyer, and he told the driver not to give the officer his keys.”

So why doesn’t that DA get Sharpton Media seized to pay for the judgement the Tawana Brawley civil case awarded him?

Good move, not giving up the keys. That really showed them who's boss. Racist loser.

I’ve watched enough of the “tow” shows to know that not giving up his keys will cost him more.

“It ain’t my problem,” Sharpton joked, pointing out that he gets driven in cars registered to his media company...

“I only verified what was going on,” Sharpton said. “I don’t have a license. I don’t drive, so I don’t have anything to do with registration or insurance.”

He said insurance, registrations, leases and contracts for the vehicles that ferry him to his myriad appointments are under the control of “my media company,” Sharpton Media, the registered owner of the impounded SUV.

Because Sharpton Media is an entirely different legal entity from Al Sharpton himself. Kind of handy, right?

How can you call Al Sharpton a loser.

He has no talent for anything except race baiting, he can hardly speak English,he isn’t at all handsome and he changes the oil in his hair once a month whether it needs it or not, and yet he is a nationwide celebrity, he has his own TV show,and thousands send him money .

I would say Al is a winner.

We are all the losers.

He probably took out life insurance on the 8 people that died in that racist massacre that he instigated the day before it happened.

License? No.

Registration? No.

Proof of Insurance? No.

Race card? YES!

Sorry to inconvenience you, Mr. Sharpton

No problem, I want Racist Ruiz busted back to baggage handler provided he avoids jail after the IRS investigates him.

I was pulled over some time ago. I didn't have my Insurance card in the car. I had insurance, but I didn't have the card in the car. The Policeman threw the book at me. I had a mess of counts to deal with, speeding, lane change violations, no Insurance card in the car. I had to appear before a Judge and show I had Insurance.

I went to court and I spent the day watching the Judge. I learned he had a sense of humor, but didn't like stupid excuses. His clerk of court kept him organized. She passed the court documents to the Judge. He simply turned pages, asked questions, determined a verdict and called for the next case.

I finally appeared before the Judge. He looked at me over his bifocals and asked, “why didn't you have your Insurance card in the car”. I looked over at his Clerk of Court and said, “I suppose it is because I don't have a good woman around to keep me organized”. His exact words were, “may I suggest a Clerk of Court and not a wife. This case is dismissed”. He banged his gavel and told me to leave his court room.

Call me Matlock.
