Sharpton's daughter sues NYC for $5 million over sprained ankle
The apple doesn’t fall very far from the tree, even in the Big Apple. Or, as Kathianne Bonniello of the New York Post puts it, “She learned at the feet of the master.”
Shakedown artist Al Sharpton’s eldest child wants $5 million from city taxpayers after she fell in the street and sprained her ankle, court records show.
Dominique Sharpton, 28, says she was “severely injured, bruised and wounded” when she stumbled over uneven pavement at the corner of Broome Street and Broadway downtown last year, according to a lawsuit.
Uneven pavement? Why that is gross negligence, and almost never happens., EWhy, it has ruined her life, hence the need for such a fortune:
Currently on vacation in Bali, the membership director for her gadfly dad’s National Action Network claims she “still suffers and will continue to suffer for some time physical pain and bodily injuries,” according to the suit filed against the city departments of Transportation and Environmental Protection.
Why, it’s made her existence into a never-ending experience of extreme pain:
“I sprained my ankle real bad lol,” she wrote in a post to Instagram after the Oct. 2 fall.
And the damage is permanent:
She was pictured in a walking boot in the weeks following the tumble, but by December, Dominique was good to go for NAN’s Justice for All march in Washington, DC, and for a New Year’s Eve jaunt to Miami Beach.
They think we are suckers, father and daughter, both. And so far they have been right.
