ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS Atlanta) – The Occupy movement has decided to fight fire with fire.
Last week, John Paul Thornton of Decatur, Ala. filed to create a PAC for the Occupy Movement. “PAC” is an acronym for a political action committee, or an organization that campaigns for or against candidates, legislation, and ballot initiatives.
The formation of an Occupy Wall Street super PAC by an activist in Decatur, Alabama is sparking a backlash from the movement's organizers in Washington, D.C. and New York City.
"This caught us completely by surprise," said Bill Csapo, an activist affiliated with the Campaign to Occupy Wall Street in New York. "I don't think any of us would agree that a super PAC is the right way to go."
To be sure, Thornton has been feeling the heat. "I didn't know this thing was going to blow up as soon as it did," he tells The Atlantic Wire. "There are stronger feelings about it than I originally envisioned."

Just gotta love how haters on the Occupy movement go ON AND ON of how the movement is "unorganized", and THEN when they begin to organize in some manner, they hate on that. Then after ridiculing them for being "leaderless", the haters ridicule the Occupy movement when they think that they are being backed or having a leader. And ON AND ON about EVERYTHING nit-picking and HATING.

Maybe because mush of what is said against Occupy by the right and here on ATS is utterly ridiculous. As I said in my original reply to the OP is that I don't think the guy is serious and I don't think the action needed to be rebuked by anyone officially involved in an Occupy, but just in case the guy is serious...know that according to ALL sources the guy is acting alone and has been rebuked by OWS and Occupy DC spokespersons.
