Can I get a witness?

The Rev. Al Sharpton tried to move heaven and earth yesterday to keep his SUV from being towed at La Guardia Airport — but no amount of preaching could stop Port Authority cops from impounding the vehicle.

An officer rolled up on the 2008 Lincoln Navigator at around 2 p.m. outside the Delta and US Airways terminal as the MSNBC host’s driver waited to pick him up in a clearly marked “no standing” zone, said PA Police spokesman Al Della Fave.

PAPD cop Oscar Ruiz asked the driver for his paperwork and quickly discovered that the SUV had a suspended registration “due to lack of insurance,” the spokesman said.

At that point, Sharpton emerged from the terminal after a flight from Washington, DC, and raised holy hell over the situation.

“He begins yelling, saying the cop was just doing this because of who he was,” a source said.

“Sharpton was adamant there was insurance,” the source said. “He said he was on the phone with his lawyer, and he told the driver not to give the officer his keys.”

But the driver ignored his boss and turned over the keys to the cop — who issued the vehicle three summonses for illegal parking, lack of insurance and suspended registration.

Sharpton at first disputed the police account when reached by The Post last night — but soon saw the humor in the situation.

“It ain’t my problem,” Sharpton joked, pointing out that he gets driven in cars registered to his media company.

“I just called another car. I keep on rolling.”

When asked what was going to be done about the Navigator’s suspended license and lack of insurance, he said, “Somebody at the office will handle that.”

Sharpton insisted he didn’t throw a tantrum at the airport.

“I only verified what was going on,” Sharpton said. “I don’t have a license. I don’t drive, so I don’t have anything to do with registration or insurance.”

He said insurance, registrations, leases and contracts for the vehicles that ferry him to his myriad appointments are under the control of “my media company,” Sharpton Media, the registered owner of the impounded SUV.

Reading this first hacky line and knowing this is a NYC story regarding Rev Al...I figured this was a NY Post story.

Poor Al though. Haha!

Non story we already know people like Rev Al, Charley Rangel, and now Sherrod Brown, etc... think they don't have to pay all the taxes & fees that they think we should have to pay.

Bullshit. You know he got indignant over this.
Absolutly 100 percent he made a scene and probably wanted to play the ol' race card. Which for Al is looking very torn up, dirty, and worn out at this point.

Who runs the company, Mr. Dumbass Sharpton?
