OWS everything the Tea Party is not

Occupy leader gets 1-3 years for selling stolen property
A Wappingers Falls man was sentenced to one to three years in prison for selling stolen property, a Dutchess County Court official says.
Anthony Poliandro, 24, of 24 Top O’Hill Road was convicted of fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, a felony.
Poliandro’s brother, Vincent Poliandro, 29, was burglarizing homes in the Wappingers Falls area. On one occasion, Anthony Poliandro sold a computer to a police officer. On another occasion, he sold a Marlin .30-30 rifle that was stolen from a police officer’s home to a state trooper, the court said.
Anthony Poliandro, a leader of the Occupy Poughkeepsie movement, as well as the Occupy New York movement, admitted to selling numerous items of property that had been stolen by family members, the court official said.
Update on PCB dredging planned; watch it live
About half of the PCBs deposited in the upper Hudson River by General Electric have been dredged, the Environmental Protection Agency says.
But the removal of the PCBs is only part of a massive effort to restore the river. A concurrent assessment of the damage to natural resources caused by the contamination has been under way for a decade, and will continue for years to come.
The assessment seeks to develop a comprehensive restoration plan, and to determine how much GE should pay for those restoration efforts.
Today, Kathryn Jahn of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service will update the public on the restoration assessment during a forum at Marist College.
Jahn’s presentation will be streamed live at about 5:15 p.m.

If you do some fact-checking, you'll find that the -only- connection between this guy and the Occupy movement is this Journal article accusing him of being connected to the Occupy movement. It's a complete contrivance.
