Upset By Elizabeth Warren, U.S. Banks Debate Halting Some Campaign Donations

Big Wall Street banks are so upset with U.S. Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren's call for them to be broken up that some have discussed withholding campaign donations to Senate Democrats in symbolic protest, sources familiar with the discussions said.

Representatives from Citigroup, JPMorgan, Goldman Sachs and Bank of America, have met to discuss ways to urge Democrats, including Warren and Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown, to soften their party's tone toward Wall Street, sources familiar with the discussions said this week.

Bank officials said the idea of withholding donations was not discussed at a meeting of the four banks in Washington but it has been raised in one-on-one conversations between representatives of some of them. However, there was no agreement on coordinating any action, and each bank is making its own decision, they said.

The amount of money at stake, a maximum of $15,000 per bank, means the gesture is symbolic rather than material

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Don't worry, Wall Street; thinking Americans know that their candidates have been chosen FOR them by both your, and your associates' overt (and covert) contributions to political campaigns.

Ultimately, whoever winds in national leadership roles will be the best politicians money can buy.
