In the article Glenn links to, Democrat Raul Grijalva is quoted as saying there should be support for a permanent camp #Occupy.
“I wish there would have been something done to accommodate the ability for them to stay there for the duration.”
This shouldn’t surprise anyone. Democrat Rep Raul Grijalva sits on the advisory board to the Progressive Democrats of America with #Occupy organizers Jodie Evans and Medea Benjamin.
From the same article, Democrat Charlie Rangel also added his support for #ows:
“I’m afraid that what the mayor says is temporary may tend to be permanent as they put up more restrictions,” said Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.). “I’m very cautious [because] I’m very supportive of [the protesters], and if the city doesn’t keep its word [I’ll] have a lot more [to say].”
Dem Rep Barbara Lee also loves #occupiers. She’s mentioned in the story as well:
Democratic Rep. Barbara Lee (Calif.), for example, criticized police in Oakland for using excessive force against demonstrators there.
Connect the dots people. The Congressional Progressive Caucus has its fingerprints all over the #occupy movement.
