Good Luck, Sharpe James

This video tangentially has to do with sports. Sharpe James, the embattled former state senator and mayor of Newark, NJ, was indicted in July 2007 on 25 counts that included mail fraud, wire fraud, and conspiracy.

He was also the subject of one of the best political documentaries ever made - Marshall Curry's Street Fight.

His "co-star" in that movie was Cory Booker, former Stanford tight end, who went on to receive All-Pacific Ten Academic team honors, and 5 years later went on to succeed James as Newark's mayor.

Booker was accused by James of everything from being a Republican to being white and Jewish.

Regardless, someone getting crapped on on camera is always funny.
