Is “shakedown artist” a genetic trait? We ask because Al Sharpton’s daughter seems as good at it as her pop:

The Post reports that Dominique Sharpton says in her lawsuit that she was “severely injured, bruised and wounded” in an October 2 fall last year where she sprained an ankle on some uneven pavement in lower Manhattan. The lawsuit goes on to say that she’s in “permanent physical pain” and “still suffers and will continue to suffer for some time physical pain and bodily injuries.”

Oh really?

The Post also reports that Dominique is currently vacationing in Bali where the “permanent physical pain” from her ankle injury doesn’t seem to have stopped her from literally climbing a mountain. She posted these photos to her private Instagram account, but she linked to them on her Twitter timeline as well which allows anyone to see them:

Unreal…sunrise. #Balidays

Here’s hoping New York City doesn’t pay her a single penny, and if possible, countersues to recover its legal fees.
