Rev. Al, Pitchman

In cased you missed this Washington Post gossip item yesterday:

Al Sharpton, 2004: candidate for president of the United States. Al Sharpton, 2005: pitchman for car title loans.

In commercials airing locally, the ever-colorful Sharpton stands on a stage with an American flag and happily declares, “Finally, there’s someone in Virginia who will loan money to people the big guys won’t loan to.”

With the loans’ interest rates approaching 300%, there’s a suggestion in the piece that the Rev. is flacking for “predatory loans.”
