Where Did the Occupy Wall Street Money Go?

Maybe communist hippies aren’t the best people to entrust with large sums of money:

Occupy Wall Street in New York City could run out of cash in a matter of weeks.

A finance report shows the group that galvanized the nationwide movement against economic inequality six months ago had about $45,000 left in its main account. That’s for the week of March 2. Weekly donations plummeted to about $1,600.

Not long ago, OWS had a half a $million. Supposedly the money has been going toward organizing. We all know how expensive community organizing can be — at least if you let a community organizer be president.

No worries; just put through a call to the entertainment industry. Fools and their money are easily parted.

If even zillionaire commies (e.g., Yoko Ono, David Letterman, Stephen King, Mike Myers) are tired of throwing crumbs to these pigeons, it’s time to implement the Occupy Wall Street economic policy of replacing money with hugs.

Someone trusted these lowlifes with money?

On a tip from Conan.

    maybe we can tax the rich to pay for the occupy movement

    I’ve been wondering the very same thing. They’ve claimed that a good portion of it went towards providing bail funds for those who were arrested. Isn’t money provided for bail eventually refunded in full to the accused if they adhere to their proper bail conditions?

  3. Go to scroll down, and see the “featured video” on the right. I think he’s the treasurer.

    Bail is to provide surity for appearence in court. I would guess that the OWS crowd is smart enough not to want a professional bondsman hauling ther tails back to court if they skip bail. Yes it is refunded if the defendant shows. The fact that they are running out of funds is interesting.

    People not profit? If there is no profit, then bills don’t get paid. I just want to know what these people really expect. You can’t get everything for free and without profit, there is no incentive to produce. They are proof positive of that. They just leech off others and sit around and cause trouble.

  6. A. Levy says:

    For the minor violations they were charged with in NYC, the bail would be very low, so there’s a whole lot of money unaccounted for. Does this really surprise anyone? I’d be willing to bet far more money went for drugs than lawyers. Now we’ll see if their pals/enablers/excuse makers out there in Commiewood, you know, the more-money-than-brains folks, will refresh their coffers.

  7. AC says:

    Fraud investigators might want to look at where the bail money is being refunded. I suspect much of it may be going into the pockets of the people charged with the crimes if they or their family signed the documents and made bail with cash from OWS.

  8. Adam says:

    It’s not that surprising that they’re running out of funds:
    1. None of them have jobs.
    2. Pot, cocaine, crystal meth, and the other drugs that 90% of the Occupiers are addicted to are very expensive.
    3. Their repulsive, lawless, violent antics have caused many of their former donors/ benefactors to cut them off out of embarassment.

    Gee, a bunch of commies, greenies and other assorted grifters, and we wonder where the money went?

    No need to wonder where the money went…

    In a few months you’ll be experiencing a boatload of freshly trained get in your face Obama activists and democracy hijacking grassroots voter initiatives.

    Although I could be wrong and it went directly to buy NBP billy clubs to kill cracker babies.

    LANSING (AP) – After more than a year of what they consider continuous Republican-led policy attacks, Michigan unions are fighting back with a sweeping proposal that would enshrine collective bargaining rights in the state constitution and put them beyond the reach of state lawmakers.

    The measure would serve as a pre-emptive strike against a possible right-to-work movement in Michigan, and potentially could undo some of what the state Legislature has done in the past 14 months related to unions and bargaining powers. It also could serve as a get-out-the-vote rallying point for Democrats as they seek to re-elect President Barack Obama this fall.

    Michigan unions fight back
