AFL-CIO Boss Denies Paying Occupy CPAC Demonstrators Despite Video of Protesters Admitting Transaction

News

The Blaze reported last month on the protester at Occupy CPAC who told The Daily Caller's Michelle Fields that he and other demonstrators were paid "sixty bucks a head" to protest outside the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C. The demonstration was organized by the AFL-CIO and Occupy DC, and Chris Field noted that some of the protesters needed cue card-like reminders for what they were chanting. The DC caught up with AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka who, despite video showing otherwise, denies that his union paid protesters.
