    Ah Ha!!

    A protest organizer reportedly claimed he paid people to demonstrate with the Occupy Wall Street-offshoot rally held Thursday in Washington, D.C.

    The Daily Caller reported that a representative from a group called the DC Tenants Advocacy Coalition conceded that some Hispanic protesters marching behind him were not volunteers.

    According to the Daily Caller, about 10 Hispanic protesters were marching behind him, some holding signs in English. The report said they gave conflicting accounts about why they were there.

    The Occupy D.C. protest was one of dozens held across the country, in connection with the central protest now in its third week near Wall Street in New York.

    The DC Tenants Advocacy Coalition has not returned a request for comment.
