Al Sharpton slimed by Village Voice

From the Village Voice:

Roger Stone, the longtime Republican dirty-tricks operative who led the mob that shut down the Miami-Dade County recount and helped make George W. Bush president in 2000, is financing, staffing, and orchestrating the presidential campaign of Reverend Al Sharpton.

Recruited in 2000 by his friend James Baker, the former secretary of state, to spearhead the GOP street forces in Miami, Stone is apparently confident that he can use the Democrat-bashing preacher to damage the party’s eventual nominee, just as Sharpton himself bragged he did in the New York mayoral campaign of 2001.

Umm, maybe, or maybe Sharpton is taking help wherever he can find it. And why on earth shouldn’t he criticize other Democrats? Many of them are weak on the issues race and war, issues Sharpton views as important.

Sharpton rightfully points out that Dick Morris, a Republican strategist, worked for Bill Clinton in 1996 so why all the hubbub now?

The article implies, without ever actually proving, that Sharpton is somehow in bed with Republicans, a charge I suspect many will deem ludicrous.
