Sharpton Was an FBI Informant

New York Daily News: "He's had the titles of civil rights activist, presidential candidate and TV host. But for a time, the FBI secretly called the Rev. Al Sharpton something else: "CI-7" -- a confidential informant who taped mobsters with a bugged briefcase, helping the feds bring down members of the Genovese crime family, it was revealed Monday."

The Smoking Gun broke the story and has the documentation.
