Members and supporters of the Occupy DC movement took aim at the Democratic Party Thursday night.

The Occupiers held a protest outside a building in the 700 block of 15th Street NW where the group said the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee was hosting a private fundraising event.

In a press release, Occupy DC said the fundraiser is charging $5,000 to $75,000 per ticket. It described the event as "elitist" and another example of the government's failure to represent 99 percent percent of its citizens.

Thursday marked the two month anniversary of Occupy DC which was inspired by the Occupy Wall Street movement.
