Boardwalk Emperor–Al Sharpton called Jeffrey Chiesa an "unelected czar" and said the state's takeover of Atlantic City was unconstitutional, at a rally at the All Wars Memorial Building.
To be fair, Atlantic City government's been under different forms of state control for six years now, so local residents might not have been overly exercised by this latest takeover. But at least someone's complaining about it. The Press estimated Sharpton drew a crowd of about 100 people.
In response, Sharpton has been called a "BOZO" a "raciest [sic] attention seeking hound" and a "worthless piece of shit scammer...racist asshole."
