Mayor Bill de Blasio Appoints Sharpton’s Tax Fraud Lawyer as NYC Chief Lawyer

Al Sharpton is celebrating Bill de Blasio’s appointment of Zachary W. Carter as the chief lawyer of the City of New York.

The announcement by Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio regarding the appointment of former Judge Zachary W. Carter as Corporation Counsel for the City of New York is an unprecedented and huge step for progress. Zachary Carter personifies the forward movement of fairness and equality in the criminal justice system. I have known Zachary Carter for many years and worked with him as he prosecuted the Abner Louima case and he has done legal work for National Action Network and me.

The New York Times is celebrating what Zachary W. Carter’s appointment means for rich rapists everywhere.

“We start with our values,” Mr. de Blasio said. “We start with the positions we took and made public throughout the last year. We will drop the appeal on the stop-and-frisk case, because we think the judge was right about the reforms that we need to make. We will settle the Central Park Five case because a huge injustice was done.”

In the case known as the Central Park Five, five black and Hispanic teenagers were convicted in the 1989 attack of a Central Park jogger. Their convictions were later thrown out. A $250 million suit against the prosecutors and the police has been pending for a decade.

Rape and $250 million. Bill de Blasio is a generous redistributor of bodies and money.

Zachary W. Carter moderated a panel on “Closing Guantanamo: Terrorism and Civil Liberties in the age of Obama” for Sharpton’s National Action Network and more significantly he represented Sharpton in his tax fraud case.

Facing an escalating federal probe into his charity’s finances, the Rev. Al Sharpton now has his own muscle: former Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Zachary Carter. Sharpton said Thursday he hired Carter – a respected ex-prosecutor – to represent him and his National Action Network because he thinks the probe has become politicized.

Prosecutors and the IRS have been investigating whether Sharpton misstated the amount of money he raised during his 2004 run for President in order to qualify for matching federal funds. They are also looking into possible tax fraud involving the reverend and NAN.

On Wednesday, Sharpton wrote a letter to Rep. John Conyers (D-Michigan), who chairs the House Judiciary Committee, requesting a review of the Brooklyn U.S. attorney’s actions for possible “abuse of power,” a Sharpton spokeswoman said.

Sharpton and NAN owe several million dollars in back taxes, but Sharpton attributed the problem to a fire at his Harlem headquarters that destroyed many records. Much of the amount owed consists of penalties he’s vigorously disputing.

Now the attorney Sharpton brought in to cover up his tax fraud, is Bill de Blasio’s choice to hand out $250 million to the Central Park rapists.

The communist is at work,lots of luck NY you deserve what you voted for.. Blasio’s wife, Chirlane McCray, and paint her as an “angry black woman,” who has (as Beck once said of Barack Obama), “a deep-seated hatred of white people.” Another Michelle Obama.they should be best of friends

New York city is now hell for hard-working, honest, law-abiding productive citizens, and heaven for the ‘poor’ ‘downtrodden’ ‘oppressed’ ‘victims’ of those hard-working people.

A city of crony capitalists and serfs.

Do real Lesbians just one day decide they aren’t Lesbians anymore and marry a white guy and have two children? I guess I don’t understand the ‘rules’. I thought sexual preferences weren’t choices. At least, that is what I hear all the time from activists who push the agenda.

Exactly, NY VOTED for these people and as far as I’m concerned, that son of the mayor looks like the type that is going to end up causing a lot of trouble in the future.

I think the White House will now be their main focus, from here on out. The entire family is trouble, but I am certain Blasio’s son will be making headlines for all sorts of trouble-making and this family will treat NY like their own personal playground and bank account.

Or refuse to date the twerp son; I just look at him and see him as someone who is going to cause a lot of problems in the future. NY did this to themselves though.
