Occupy PAC: Getting money out of politics . . . or something

So, if you're the member of a movement that hates everyone else's money (because it's not your money) and thinks that other people's money must be taken out of politics, what should you do?


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.

Thornton is an active member in the Alabama Occupy movement. He said he came up with the idea when he was laying in bed.

"[I was] watching [The Colbert Report] and I thought, ‘Wouldn’t be nice if Occupy had a PAC,’ and … like a lightbulb, it came to me!" he told CBS Atlanta.

So, what will this PAC for the people push for with its political money?

Money will also be used for federal candidates such as Elizabeth Warren and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders because of their pledges to get money out of politics.

Oh, OK, then.

They might have trouble though, because as CBS reports, "starting a PAC is serious business," and these are not serious people.

In one section when the application asks for the address of any other connected organizations, the response is "none and everywhere."

Yeah, this looks like it will work out about as well as you'd expect.
