Pelosi Takes Shots at GOP, Lobbyists for Targeting Occupy Protesters in 'Message War'

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is rallying Democrats to defend the sundry Occupy movements that have sprung up across the country, appealing in a fundraising e-mail for money to help combat a “message war” against protesters orchestrated by GOP-connected lobbyists.

Pelosi's e-mail was provoked by reports of a memo to the American Bankers Association from the lobbying shop Clark Lytle Geduldig Cranford. “If vilifying the leading companies of this sector is allowed to become an unchallenged centerpiece of a coordinated Democratic campaign, it has the potential to have very long-lasting political, policy and financial impacts on the companies in the center of the bullseye,” the memo stated.
