Organizers of Occupy Portland say they fear as much as $20,000 donated to the group through a PayPal account has disappeared.Please bookmark!
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.
Jordan LeDoux, who works for the media, communications, public relations and web team of the demonstration, said Wednesday that since 8 p.m. Tuesday, Occupy Portland has not been able to get into its Internet page, occupyportland.org.
LeDoux says a member of the finance committee apparently took control of the website.
Papers filed with the Oregon secretary of state's office on Monday show that an entity called "Occupy Portland" was registered as a nonprofit.
But LeDoux said the demonstration's General Assembly, where the protesters come to consensus on issues, had repeatedly declined to incorporate with the state.
