Nancy Pelosi was one of Occupy Wall Street’s biggest supporters. Now she has raised 400,000 from a lobbyist with ties to the owners of Zuccoti Park. These are the same people who threw out the Neo-Marxists. Clearly her support was cynical and this shows where her real beliefs are. It’s about power.
Politico Influence reports that House minority leader Nancy Pelosi and minority whip Steny Hoyer raised $400,000 last night at a fundraiser held at the home of Democratic lobbyists Heather and Tony Podesta. Heather Podesta runs the firm Heather Podesta and Partners.
Heather Podesta’s clients include liberal bogeymen such as the for-profit education industry and Brookfield Asset Management, the real-estate company that owns Zuccotti Park in lower Manhattan and which ultimately gave the NYPD the green light to evict the Occupy Wall Street movement from its grounds in November 2011. Pelosi is a vocal supporter of the occupiers, having once said, “God bless them.”
John Podesta.s who’s Heather’s brother in law runs the anti-Semitic blog, Think Progress. Nice company you have there Nancy!
