....that it was noticed by "the media."
I'm still waiting for Sharpton to pay the money he owes Steven Pagones but I'm not holding my breath.
WASHINGTON (AP) ? Former presidential candidate Al Sharpton has agreed to repay $100,000 plus interest to the government for taxpayer funds he received as part of his failed 2004 bid.
Sharpton, an activist minister from New York whose effort to win the Democratic nomination racked up more debt than votes, has been at odds with the Federal Election Commission for more than a year over his personal loans to his campaign.
Repayment of the money was a deal with the FEC that was announced Thursday.
Around the time Sharpton the minister made the loans to Sharpton the candidate, he was touring churches around the country, collecting "love offerings" which were payments to support him as a minister. He then gave his struggling campaign about $110,000.
To qualify for federal matching funds, a candidate must not spend more than $50,000 of his own money on the campaign. An FEC investigation concluded Sharpton spent more than $110,000 of his own money
