OWS Almost Out Of Money

Another sign that they’re fading into history:
Occupy Wall Street in New York City could run out of cash in a matter of weeks.
A finance report shows the group that galvanized the nationwide movement against economic inequality six months ago had about $45,000 left in its main account.
That’s for the week of March 2. Weekly donations plummeted to about $1,600.
I guess those $700 a night hotel rooms drain the bank account fast. And something — perhaps the cognitive dissonance of leaders staying in hotels while the rank-and-file sleep in tents — seems to have turned off even lefty donors.
Meanwhile, Tea Party events are still going on.
Chalk up another failed attempt by the left to replicate the success of the Tea Party.
