Largest Occupy Wall Street Donor Is Mitt Romney Backer


Retired Wall Street trader and former Mercantile Exchange VP Robert Halper gave $20,000 to help launch Occupy Wall Street. He is also a backer of Mitt Romney.



But for what it’s worth, Halper seems to agree more with the protesters than with Romney—he says that “pain… should be shared” and “people who have money… should pay something more, whether that’s in taxes or somewhere else”—though the Times says he’s “ambivalent” about Occupy Wall Street in general. Even so, he’s been down in Zuccotti Park every day talking to people. It’s “the coolest place in New York,” he says.
