Interesting development. Not sure what to think about it since the details seem to be lacking at this point though pointed at his election bid.

Is it another case of "The Man" holding a brother down or a legitimate investigation?

Well that all depends. I'm sure JJ will be rushing to his aid...err, um, press, to cry racism to the media. They could find Sharpton with 100lbs of cocaine, but it still wouldn't be his fault. I hope they find whatever it is they are looking for and get this ass clown off the street

That's not correct at all. Subpoenas were delivered to the homes of four close associates.

Quoting http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2007/12/13/agents-subpoena-records-of-sharpton-associates/?hp:

F.B.I. and I.R.S. agents descended on the homes of at least four close associates of the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday morning, issuing subpoenas for financial records dating back to 2001 and also for corporate records of the National Action Network, the civil rights organization founded by Mr. Sharpton.

Why?

Again, the old tired argument that these two are linked, let alone even like each other.

This is bad, mainly because we will now be subjected to him mouthing off about how he has been violated. But if he stopped to think for a second the chances of something like this happening without the right permissions etc are near nil.
Oh well, such is life.

Not entirely accurate . . .

Subpoenas were delivered to ten or so of his staffers . . . the FBI didn't execute any search warrants

I think that entirely possible and absolutely likely.

Ohhh, I see someone already caught this.

I think this not likely at all. Sharpton won't go away until he's taking the big dirt nap.

Quoting Airfoilsguy (Reply 4):

Well, I'm not having a big party or anything.

Sharpton's a public figure - like it or not - a real POS public figure - but public figure nonetheless. This isn't the first time he's been under the microscope and it won't be the last.

If whomever finds a smoking gun and sends him away for a while, all the better. If not, we'll have to continue to put up with the racist ass.

Not likely. If anything, it will fuel his incessant polluting mouth as one of the master race baiters of our time. Along with Je$$e Jack$son, of course.

Apologies for the inaccuracy. I honestly meant nothing by it. I scanned the article briefly and figured that the subpoenas were served at the offices as well and not just the houses of the various folks.

Not your fault, Sharpton's people are already crying doom and gloom.

"It was like a sting or a raid," said Carl Redding, Sharpton's chief of staff for eight years during the 1990s. "They converged on everybody."

What was the stat I saw on the Dan Abrams show on MSNBC last night; under the Bush Administration the Justice Department has investigated six democrats for every one republican politician/official. I don't care for the Rev Sharpton, but this just smells like a fishing expedition and a witch hunt.

Isn't that the most logical way of doing it? If the just went knocking on doors one at a time, wouldn't that just be prime opportunity, if there is guilt, for Sharpton's boys to call each other up and say "burn the papers and hide the money, the feds are in town."

Unfortunately they just dropped off subpoenas telling them to bring documents to a Brooklyn courtroom on December 26th. Still plenty of time to hide things if they really wanted to do so...and I'm not saying that is what they would do.

And I'm sure those stats get reversed under Democratic administrations.

Actually, no they don't..the chart provided by one of the guests shows that during both prior Republicans and Democratic administrations the number investigated are about equal. The point of the show was to show how much the Bush administration has used the Justice Department for his own gain.

The Rev. Al Sharpton on Thursday angrily denounced reports of an investigation into his 2004 presidential bid and suggested that federal authorities were retaliating against him for his civil rights advocacy.

What a typical response from him.  Yeah sure
