Occupy Wall Street? or Work There?

Isn’t it amazing–the members of an organization devoted to small government, low taxes, etc etc would rather work on Wall Street for a lot of money rather than work with OCCUPY as a volunteer? Amazingly, more than a fourth opted for OCCUPY!! Inside moles? A new bizarre front group for Wl Street pops up every day.

  1. Such an amazing coincidence that they are all conservative Republicans: “Three former Santorum aides will move on to trying to rally young voters to political causes, about a month after the end of Santorum’s campaign.

    Nick Pappas, who ran operations in New Hampshire; Jake Uhlenkott, who was the National Field Director; and David Pasch, a 23-year-old Vanderbilt graduate who was staff lead and trip manager for the campaign, have all signed on to work with Generation Opportunity, a conservative political group in Washington, D.C. that focuses on the youth vote.

    The other high-level Santorum staffer to find a job quickly after the dissolution of the campaign is Mike Biundo, Santorum’s campaign manager, who has joined the Romney campaign.
