You've got a lot to do but MEDIA is dying for stories about distension at #OWS. If it is true that there are two different groups, one of loafers and infiltrators, the other of workers and true revolutionaries, then you must deal with this before it destroys you. I have seen this happen, but one simple thing can bring the conflict out and resolve it: Make sure EVERYONE has something to do, be it picking up garbage, handing out flyers, any kind of work offered should be gratefully accepted. If not and an alternative cannot be found, this person is not part of the community and should be expelled. You cannot have consensus with people who only take and do not give. If they are committed, they will willingly help.
