Sharpton Donations Latest Controversy for Ratner

New, comment

In an investigative report on Al Sharpton's National Action Network, the New York Post suggests that the civil rights leader changed his tune on Bruce Ratner after the Nets' owner started making donations to NAN. The Post cites harsh criticism of Ratner's labor policies in 2000 and then, after the donations, full support for the Nets' arena and Atlantic Yards four years later. Sharpton denies a connection.
