While Al Sharpton has been in the news over the past few months for the multiple outstanding tax burdens he owes in the state of New York, his daughter is making headlines for other conspicuous (and unethical) reasons.

Dominique Sharpton recently sued the city of New York for $5 million dollars.

All because while crossing a busy New York street and stepping in a giant crack she said she sprained her ankle to such a degree it will now cause her permanent, life changing injury.

According to the suite she filed on April 29th, “She still sufferers and will continue to suffer for some time physical pain and bodily injuries.”

Reports indicated within just a few weeks of sustaining the injury she was already back on the streets in high heels.

To further complicate her claims of life-altering injury were the recent photos she posted to her Instagram account while celebrating her birthday in the tropical paradise of Bali.

Her claims have essentially been nullified after she posted a picture of her and a friend summiting a mountain in Bali.

On her Instagram post she wrote.

“We hiked UP the mountain, over the clouds… into the SUNRISE,” Dominique, 28, wrote in the May 16 post.

“One of the most beautiful sites ever. And YES I ALMOST DIED GETTING UP THERE LOL. #Balidays we made it, WHEW.”

It makes you wonder how a woman who was all but disabled by a vicious crack in the street would manage such a physical feat.

As The New York Post writes:

What legal experts saw as truly unreal, however, is the younger Sharpton’s brazen boasting after she claimed in court papers that she was in “permanent physical pain.”

“It is starting to look like Tawana Brawley is orchestrating the Sharpton trial strategy,” quipped CNN legal analyst Paul Callan. “It graphically demonstrates bad judgment and good feet. It all adds up to no case.”

If anything it shows how utterly baseless her claims really are.

Her lawyer, John Elefterakis, said that even though she climbed the mountain, “Ms. Sharpton did sustain multiple ligament and tendon tears in her ankle” and added that, despite her mountain exploits, she “has not returned to her pre-accident form.”

For anyone with eyes to see Ms. Sharpton has only proven she and her father are one in the same.

Two people who are willing to gouge taxpayers for every penny they can, and doing so on completely baseless charges.
