Sharpton As McGreevey

Errol Louis argues in the Daily News that the Sharpton sex scandal is the best thing that could have happened to the Rev:

“Sharpton is doing a McGreevey. The New Jersey ex-governor used the shock value of his coming out as a ‘gay American’ to divert attention from a boatload of ethics abuses plaguing his administration.

“Sharpton, a far more gifted pol, knows the adultery focus of the Voice story conveniently overshadows questions about his organization and presidential campaign. Federal filings show Sharpton’s campaign remains hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt.”

It’ll be ironic if the Wayne’s prurient sex story ends up overshadowing Sharpton’s questionable finances, since Wayne broke that story too.
