Rev. Al Shartpon writes in a column for the Huffington Post:

In 2012, I was on the front lines of many of the battles we faced. Whether it was draconian voter ID laws, the shooting death of young Travyon Martin, or the attacks on women and the workers of America, I went into each challenge concerned that they had outmaneuvered us financially. But in the end, I left convinced that money could not buy genuine commitment.

Front line Sharpton.

If by “on the front lines,” Sharpton actually means “barely being able to read off a teleprompter in a well-lighted, comfortably-air conditioned MSNBC TV studio complete with production crew and make up artists (to hide those unsightly blemishes); all while wearing a pricey three-piece suit with too many buttons down the front.”
