Rev. Al Sharpton on FBI probe of Rev. Ruben Diaz, Sr.

The Reverend Al Sharpton on the current FBI probe of State Senator Ruben Diaz, Sr. and his son, Assemblymember Ruben Diaz, Jr.:
The fact of the matter is that it might not hurt them at all. Sometimes, in communities of color, attacks from law enforcement backfire. When you’re under attack, it gives your supporters a chance to rally around you, especially when the attacks seem unfair or unwarranted.
From a profile of the Senator and his son in today's New York Times. The article notes the differences of opinion between father and son on issues regarding same-sex marriage and abortion, among other issues (h/t The Agenda).
