White House Ordered Authorities to Go Easy on Occupy Portland

Documents obtained by Judicial Watch show federal law enforcement officers were told by the GSA not to enforce a curfew on federal property


The Obama administration told law enforcement authorities to go easy on Occupy Wall Street protesters, even though they were violating local laws, according to documents obtained by watchdog group Judicial Watch.

Emails from the General Services Administration show that the federal agency, acting on orders from the White House, told federal law enforcement authorities in Portland, Ore., not to enforce curfews on protesters camped out on federal property.
