RAT

Renown Civil Rights activist  Reverend Al Sharpton loves saying late soul singer James Brown was his second father, but he never said a word about his kinship to  “Uncle Sam”

 Over three decades ago the rev became a rat for the feds after being snagged in a drug sting according to FBI filings in a federal court.  Sharpton then started recording reputed  heavy hitters in the Genovese and Gambino crime families of La Cosa Nostra as a confidential FBI informant

The rev tells The Daily Beast he never ratted out the Mafia to the FBI,
