Omaha World Herald and Des Moines Register: Occupy group to ramp up in Iowa

The Occupy Wall Street movement plans on protesting the Iowan Republican caucus.  According to an article in the Omaha World Herald, OWS will be conducting a "People's Caucus", beginning January 3rd.  Starting on December 28th, OWS protesters will also stage demonstrations at Mitt Romney's campaign offices and the Wells Fargo bank.  According to the Des Moines Register, the purpose of the protests are to draw attention to Wells Fargo's donations to the Romney campaign.  Wells Fargo has been a target of OWS because of their sub-prime lending practices prior to the housing crash of 2007 which forced thousands of home owners into foreclosure.
