Some Democrats have been hesitant to embrace the somewhat anarchic Occupy Wall Street movement, but the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) has decided to take the plunge, The Hill reports. In an email sent out Monday, the DCCC asks Democrats to sign a petition in support of the group.

"Protestors are assembling in New York and around the country to let billionaires, big oil, and big bankers know that we’re not going to let the richest 1 percent force draconian economic policies and massive cuts to crucial programs on Main Street Americans," the email reads.

The letter takes issue with comments from House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. He said he was "increasingly concerned" by the "mob protests."

The DCCC email says: "Out-of-touch Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor said he is 'increasingly concerned by the growing mobs.' Mobs? That must be what Republicans refer to as the middle class, or maybe the millions of unemployed Americans across the country.”
