Occupy Nashville wants an apology from Rep. Watson

NASHVILLE, TN (Times Free Press) -- Occupy Nashville protesters wants an apology from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Eric Watson of Cleveland.

In a letter, the group says that Watson's contention that they were responsible for a November incident in which a legislative secretary was struck by urine was "out of order."

"The person or animal responsible for this act has never been identified," the group says in a letter to Judiciary Vice Chairman Jim Coley, R-Bartlett. "There's no evidence that the employee was intentionally targeted; and no one has shown a connection of any sort with Occupy Nashville."

Watson, a Republican, last week referenced the incident in which a secretary sitting in a legislative courtyard said she was struck by a stream of urine from above, where Occupy Nashville protesters have been encamped since October.
