Rev. Al Sharpton talks about the IRS harassment of Tea Party and political groups.

On Rev. Al’s Huffington Post  blog post he posted the following :

It’s difficult for some to process the fact that my parents were Republicans. But they were, as was our Pastor; that is, until the mid-’60s. As it became abundantly clear that Republicans were going to stand on the wrong side of civil rights, on the wrong side of progress and on the wrong side of history, it became obvious to my parents and our Pastor that they would know longer stand with them. And so it went for many African Americans, and progressive Whites. The Republican Party quickly transformed and the Party of old was very different from the Party of present.

Today, that concept can be multiplied tenfold. There’s a reason why Blacks, Latinos, Asians, gays, immigrants and other groups overwhelmingly voted with the Democrats during the last election — mainly that we vote with those who fight for greater equality. So if Reince Priebus, National Republican Party Chairman, and the rest of his comrades think that we can ‘bought’ for any amount of money, it’s time we set the record straight.
