Videotape shows Sharpton cutting a deal | Philadelphia Inquirer | 12/15/2007: "With a hidden FBI camera rolling inside a New York hotel suite in 2003, an unsuspecting Rev. Al Sharpton, Democratic candidate for president, spoke candidly.
Sharpton offered to help Philadelphia fund-raiser Ronald A. White win a multimillion-dollar business deal, if White helped him raise $50,000 for politics.
White offered $25,000. 'If you bring my guys up on this hedge fund, and I have the right conversation,' White said, 'I'll give you what you need.'
'Cool,' Sharpton said."
