Sharpton Claim: I Briefed Hillary, Holder And Obama On Voting Rights Act
Al Sharpton claims he has briefed Barack Obama, Eric Holder, and Hillary Clinton on the Supreme Court's recent Voting Rights Act decision.
The MSNBC host took to the Huffington Post to criticize Bill O'Reilly for speaking out against black on black crime in the wake of the George Zimmerman verdict. In his post, Sharpton draws a contrast between the crime issue and the recent decision rolling back portions of the Voting Rights Act. As Sharpton bragged about his critical insight and influence at the highest levels of power, he revealed that he has briefed the President, the Attorney General and even Hillary Clinton on the issue:
This Monday afternoon I, along with a dozen other civil rights and voting rights leaders, joined President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder as we briefed them on our outrage at the Supreme Court's recent decision gutting Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act... On my way to Washington, D.C., I happened to be on the same flight as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. When we landed, she and I had an impromptu conversation on this very issue, and I updated her on the August 24th march that National Action Network (NAN) and Martin Luther King III have planned to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 'March on Washington' where his father delivered his historic 'I Have a Dream' speech.
Sharpton even Tweeted a picture of his encounter with Hillary after their shared flight:
