Sharpton accussed of ripping off travel agency
Now this is not good PR - mind you it is the Post. The New York that is...



August 21, 2003 -- Democratic presidential candidate Al Sharpton stiffed a Manhattan travel agency out of almost $200,000 after giving them "fraudulent credit-card information," the agency says in a lawsuit.
Alpha International Travel Agency claims they took care of travel for Sharpton and his National Action Network between May 1, 2001, and Aug. 3, 2002 - before his presidential campaign officially launched - and set them up with "airline tickets and hotel services."

In that time, Sharpton and the NAN ran up a $193,131.97 bill. They've refused to pay it, and so far the only thing they have given Alpha is the bogus card information, the suit says.

"When Sharpton provided this false and misleading information . . . knew that the information was false and that would rely upon such false information," the suit says.
