Al Sharpton’s 2004 Presidential Campaign STILL Owes Over $900,000 to Creditors

(FOXBusiness) Rev. Al Sharpton’s unsuccessful presidential campaign had nearly $1 million in debt at the end of 2019 ⁠— more than 15 years after his 2004 presidential bid.

Sharpton’s former campaign treasurer Andrew Rivera is responsible for paying off the $925,713.78 in debt.

“I have asked Andrew Rivera, the finance chair of my 2004 campaign, to set up a meeting with the Federal Election Commission so that I can resolve any campaign debts related to Sharpton 2004,” Sharpton told the New York Post. “I am willing to work out a settlement for all claims with my own money to the degree that I’m allowed and will raise money directly … Even if I am not legally liable for it, I am certainly morally responsible.”

Sharpton runs the influential nonprofit National Action Network. He made more than $1 million at the organization in 2018, according to the Post.

Campaign committees that are unable to pay their debts can file a debt-settlement plan with the FEC, the commission told the Post.

Sharpton and Rivera settled with the FEC in 2009 on a separate matter: violating federal campaign finance laws.
