Occupy AIPAC publishing an award winning anti-Semitic cartoonist

I read a piece at the Washington Free Beacon Yesterday (published Thursday), stating that:

“The artist who took second place in the Iranian-backed International Holocaust Cartoon Competition is now making derogatory sketches for Occupy AIPAC, a far-left group that accuses the American Israel Public Affairs Committee of controlling U.S. foreign policy. Carlos Latuff is the Holocaust-denying cartoonist who has attracted controversy for illustrating cartoons that portray the Israel Defense Forcecommitting war crimes during the 2008 Gaza war.”

After repeated inquiries, the problematic works were removed  and group leader Rae Abilaeh claimed Occupy Aipac had no idea about this. But I still have to wonder how a movement that presents itself as a legit and democratic protest group uses artwork by a guy who created this cartoon among others
