Minn. protesters rally outside of Wells Fargo decrying political affiliations

Protesters at a Wednesday Minnesotans for a Fair Economy rally outside Wells Fargo’s Minneapolis office donned huge puppet masks showing the faces of U.S. representatives and their supporters, claiming they’re killing jobs and refusing to give up their “piece of the pie.”

While a crowd of more than 100 called for job creation actors dressed as U.S. Reps. Erik Paulsen, John Kline and Michele Bachmann and one of their corporate sponsors, Wells Fargo MN CEO and Minnesota Chamber of Commerce chair Jon Campbell, “gobbled pies and refused to share a piece with hardworking Minnesotans,” according to a news release.

Participants passed out pie-themed fliers criticizing Wells Fargo donations by its PAC and executives in support of the representatives and others who have pushed federal budgets that would, according to the group, kill jobs in education, health care and throughout the economy with draconian cuts.

The release states that between PAC and employee contributions, Wells Fargo has given more than $5 million to politicians, including at least $8,700 to Bachmann, $12,250 to Kline, and $28,000 to Paulsen. More than $10,000 of donations to Paulsen came directly from the Wells Fargo PAC, with additional money as a personal contribution from Wells Fargo CEO Campbell, according to the release.

“We’ve already been attacked for so long, it seems like it’s getting harder and harder to climb out from the state we’re already in,” Carri Love of New Hope said in the release. Love, who attended the rally, said she has been looking for a job since July 1.
