Who knew being a shakedown artist ran in the family.
Dominique Sharpton, the daughter of race-baiting, tax-evading Rev. Al, is suing the City of New York for $5 million after spraining her ankle while walking on a sidewalk downtown last year.
As weaselzippers reports, it’s just enough to pay daddy’s back taxes.
It clearly wasn’t a big deal when Dominique took to Instagram to post “I sprained my ankle real bad lol.”
She was pictured in a walking boot in the weeks following the tumble, but by December, Dominique was good to go for NAN’s Justice for All march in Washington, DC, and for a New Year’s Eve jaunt to Miami Beach.
And despite claiming “permanent physical pain” in a breathless notice of claim in December, at around the same time there were social-media shots of her in high heels and fancy dresses and climbing a ladder to decorate a Christmas tree.
But it must have got worse … much worse.
The New York Post is reporting daughter Sharpton and her ankle are currently vacationing in Bali, so they had to talk to one of the Sharpton lackeys.
The membership director for her gadfly dad’s National Action Network claims she “still suffers and will continue to suffer for some time physical pain and bodily injuries.”
Dominique claims she as “severely injured, bruised and wounded” when she stumbled over uneven pavement.
Falling in the street left her with “internal and external injuries to the whole body, lower and upper limbs, the full extent of which are unknown, permanent pain and mental anguish,” she alleges in the court document.
The younger Sharpton is seeking the damages for “loss of quality of life, future pain and suffering, future medical bills, [and] future diminution of income,” according to court papers.
If she scores her legal windfall, she might want to give her dad a handout; he reportedly owes $4.5 million in unpaid state and federal taxes.
