Is Al Sharpton going to help choose the next Attorney General?

On the heels of Eric Holder’s resignation as Attorney General, Al Sharpton claims to be getting involved in helping choose Holder’s successor:

“We are engaged in immediate conversations with the White House on deliberations over a successor whom we hope will continue in the general direction of Attorney General Holder,” Sharpton said in a statement.

Disturbing, but completely believable.

Let's sit back and imagine the media circus if a Fox News host was actively involved in picking the next AG. http://t.co/v3NEWw1bOL

Without a doubt!

Too much to hope for here:

@DLoesch I was hoping that was a @voxdotcom story. Then we would know it couldn't be true.
