Who's paying for Occupy's DC digs?
A labor union with strong ties to President Obama is paying for Occupy’s Washington, D.C., office space inside a thinktank that also is heavily tied to the White House.
Both the thinktank and the union are closely associated with Occupy.
The Service Employees International Union is forking over $4,000 per month for three offices inside the Institute for Policy Studies, or IPS thinktank, whose headquarters are a short distance from the tent city Occupy set up in McPherson Square in Washington in October.
The information was confirmed by IPS director John Cavanagh in an article by Abrey Whelan of the Washington Examiner, who first reported yesterday on the origins of Occupy’s rental bill.
