Don't call me, Al

The Rev. Al Sharpton is giving Gov. David Paterson advice about whether to stay in office amid ethics charges and possible criminal allegations? That's rich!

Reverend Al - the man who lied about Tawana Brawley to authorities, reporters and anyone else who was stupid enough to listen.

Reverend Al - who has been sued countless times for failing to pay his bills.

Reverend Al - who stood trial in 1990 for tax fraud and stealing from a charity.

Reverend Al - who, according to federal authorities, neglected to pay more than $1.5 million in taxes from the late 1990s to 2008.

Paterson has enough problems as it is. He doesn't need "taking advice from a liar and crook" added to the list.
