Jackson’s hypocrisy with his extramarital affair and Sharpton’s calculated misdeeds in the Tawana Brawley case (in which he pushed for the prosecution of six police officers – knowing the young woman involved was lying about her rape and abduction) began to expose them as more modern-era hucksters than civil rights activists….
