Up Exclusive: DC Lobbyists Pitch Plan to Attack Occupy Wall Street


In case you caught the Huffington Post story about our exclusive this morning, you should know that they only had two paragraphs of a four-page memo.

We'll be posting the full memo today after the program so you can see it for yourselves, but we can tell you now that it's a well-known Washington lobbyist firm, Clark Lytle Geduldig & Cranford, pitching an $850,000 plan to one of its Wall Streets clients...for punishing politicians who might express sympathy for Occupy Wall Street.

Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) is specifically singled out for targeting, and he'll respond to this story on tomorrow's edition of Up. In the meantime, we're going to try to keep track of where and how this story gets picked up, so please give us a shout if you see it making the rounds...

Jonathan Larsen is the executive producer of Up w/ Chris Hayes. You can follow him on Twitter @JTLarsen.
