A Day in the Life of Occupy Candidate George Martinez

A Day in the Life of Occupy Candidate George Martinez

For this week's cover story, Nick Pinto profiles George Martinez, the self-identified "Occupy Wall Street candidate":
"Martinez acknowledges that his campaign rubs a lot of Occupy activists wrong, and says they're right to be suspicious. But he urges them to take a closer look at how he's conducting his run. It's not just that he shows up for marches and that a lot of his staff and volunteers are Occupy people, he says. Although his campaign looks a lot like any other insurgent primary challenge, he says there are some important differences." All photographs by Mark Hewko.
