Organizers of Occupy Portland say they fear as much as $20,000 donated to the group through a PayPal account has disappeared.
They also say the group's finance committee has hijacked the demonstration's Internet domain name and filed for incorporation against the wishes of the group's decision-making body.
The demonstrator who filed the papers with the state said Wednesday she did so to protect the protest, and she has received death threats as a result.
LeDoux said Occupy Portland's organizers believe that "between $10,000 and $20,000" has disappeared from the protest's control. LeDoux said a finance committee member linked his PayPal account to occupypdx.org for donations.
LeDoux said the General Assembly had repeatedly asked the finance committee, of eight to 10 members, to provide an accounting of the money coming it, but the finance committee never did so.

Liberals are the greediest people.
I predicted this would happen as soon as they started bragging about the money they’re collecting.
As soon as I heard the other day the the OWS group had collected over $500,000 ... I KNEW it was the end, splinter groups will form demanding part of the money, and it will end with law suits and lawyers walking away with all the cash.
I know.... THE RICH STOLE IT!!! That MUST be it!!!!
Wait - let me get the popcorn.
Just more proof that socialism is a failure
Or to see if someone’s student loans have suddenly been repaid....
You have to spend time in Portland to know how funny this is. I bet someone hanging out at Pioneer Sq knows where the $$$ is.
People prostesting for wealth redisribution complaining about one of it’s members redistributing wealth to itself...
The good citizen just wanted to make sure you don’t get rich and pompous. Its for you’re groups own good, so stop complaining about a bit of 1%er cash because it only corrupts you. Har har and fiddle diddle on you greedy protesters.
Their wealth has been redistributed. Ha Ha.
Occupy Portland has become a corporation????

Corruption. Theft, Greed.

That’s just awful!....(sarc.)
“between $10,000 and $20,000”
These fools don’t even have a clue how much money they had.
0bama will make it up for them.
This group is running its ‘protest’ just the way Liberal politicians conduct themselves, once they are elected. It’s why we’re in the jackpot we’re in.
Yup... I want THEIR suggestions to reform the country!!!
ROFLMAO!!! Maybe they need to form a new group: OOOF (Occupy & Oversee Ouselves First).
