The Rev. Al Sharpton opened his annual civil rights conference, which will include a speech by President Barack Obama, amid revelations about his cooperation with the FBI in a 1980s mob investigation.
Sharpton admitted on Tuesday that he helped the feds investigate New York Mafia figures, even making secret recordings that appeared to help bring down a mob boss. The cooperation, revealed Monday in a story on The Smoking Gun website, came at an awkward time for Sharpton, who presided over the National Action Network conference Wednesday.

Wow, Kaiser Bill, The Emperor Jones and The Reverend Rat all in one place.
A true ‘Rat convention.
Exactly. The FBI is never going to ask me to become an informant on the mob—because I have nothing to do with the mob.
Thugs, goons and islamists. Bus in some homos and soebarkah’s in. “Ooooh, Reggie....”
This one seems strange because I’m sure old Al would have been a target for a hit! But the mouth continues to spout!
Fellow race hustler ACORN socialists.
He now talks sh## about being a great crime fighter
Sharpton must have a been a big deal, he ratted on Vincent Gigante who was the godfather of the genovse family, so that means he had personal dealings with him and you have to be a big fish for a mafia don to do face to face business with you
Rev Al was planning a soul food buffet for attendees——then 10 cousins of the Genovese family from South Philadelphia offered to serve (ahem) refreshments.
