(Via Project Veritas) Following the negative comments directed at the Reverend Al Sharpton by the family and representatives of Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, and Michael Brown, James O’Keefe went to Al Sharpton’s weekly National Action Network to question the Reverend.
Before being “compelled” to leave the rally by several very large men standing over him, the good Reverend directly addressed O’Keefe and another Project Veritas journalist mid speech. A visibly flustered Sharpton said that O’Keefe was clowning and accused him (and the right wing in general) of distorting, exaggerating, and lying.

The Obama administration is refusing to publicly release more than 500 documents on the IRS’s targeting of Tea Party groups.
Twenty months after the IRS scandal broke, there are still many unanswered questions about who was spearheading the agency’s scrutiny of conservative-leaning organizations.
The Hill sought access to government documents that might provide a glimpse of the decision-making through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

Boehner rips right for raising money by ‘just beating the dickens out of me’
Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) is blaming conservative groups in Washington for turning him into a human pinata to raise money.
In an interview to air on Sunday’s “60 Minutes” on CBS, Boehner said he doesn’t disagree that much with conservatives on policy, but that the groups beat “the dickens out of me” in order to line their own pockets.
“The issue with the Tea Party isn’t one of strategy. It’s not one of different vision,” Boehner said, according to excerpts released by CBS.
“It’s a disagreement over tactics, from time to time. Frankly, a lot is being driven by national groups here in Washington who have raised money and just beating the dickens out of me,” Boehner said in the joint interview with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).
“It works. They raise money, put it in their pocket, and pay themselves big salaries,” Boehner added.
Boehner has faced his share of rebellions from conservative members. This year, he had to contend with a brief attempt to oust him as Speaker. Members in the right wing of the party frequently say he is too lenient on the Obama administration. In the CBS interview, Boehner said his “voting record is as conservative as anybody here.”
In recent days, conservative lawmakers have criticized House leadership because they believe Boehner and others have backed down from confronting the administration over the president’s executive order on immigration.
Boehner has hit at conservative groups before, criticizing the Heritage Foundation and Club for Growth in 2013 after they opposed a bipartisan budget deal from Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.).
“Frankly, I just think they’ve lost all credibility,” he said at the time. “I don’t care what they do.”
