Grapevine: Next steps for Occupy Wall Street

And now some fresh pickings from the Political Grapevine...

Staying Occupied

A tale of two Occupations?

Amid talk that the Occupy Wall Street movement is waning some in the group are planning a national convention in Philadelphia over the July 4th weekend.

It is being modeled after the founding fathers' Continental Congress gathering in 1776.

The general assembly will include 876 elected delegates from across the country.

They will draft and ratify what they call a petition for a redress of grievances that will likely include issues such as getting money out of politics and dealing with student loan debt.

However, an Occupy Wall Street public relations official says the organization is not endorsing the conference.

Occupy Philadelphia went so far as to pass a resolution saying it does not support anything associated with this gathering.
