Wells Fargo is a target due to the Dakota Access Pipeline.
I notice Wells Fargo has a giant office building in downtown Seattle, and branches all over town. So you could argue it is a hometown bank, providing jobs and banking services locally. The Seattle City Council rewards it by meting out punishment, acting like a white-guilt, wealth-hating, political-punishment machine.
This pipeline is a national issue for the federal government and the involved states to deal with. It has nothing to do with the charter and mission of the city of Seattle.
Which bank does have the correct politics according to our city leaders?
