Speaking with the Daily News, Sharpton indicated that his priorities currently lie with speaking out against the acquittal of George Zimmerman, the state of Florida’s so-called “Stand Your Ground” laws, and urging the Department of Justice to take up a civil rights case against Zimmerman for the 2012 death of 17-year-old Martin.
The Daily News reports [emphasis added]:
Though Sharpton was tight-lipped about his personal life Monday, the normally press-loving rabble-rouser was happy to pontificate with reporters on the city’s political races.
Eliot Spitzer and Scott Stringer — Democratic rivals in the high-profile race for city controller — had both recently reached out to him, he said.
“I have not made an endorsement there. . . . Both of them have called me and I told both of them that I was in the middle of the Trayvon Martin thing,” he said.
