M & I Bank, whose executives donated significantly to Scott Walker's campaign for Governor, became the target of protesters yesterday. Members of Firefighters Local 311 withdrew money from their accounts and urged others to do likewise. The Bank closed early, supposedly due to safety concerns. It is certainly possible that it was really due to a shortage of cash on hand at that branch if the firefighters indeed withdrew close to $200K in the space of a couple hours. The Internet is filled with calls to withdraw funds from M&I Bank.
M&I survived the collapse of 2008, thanks to TARP funds but has been on shaky ground ever since. It was recently bought by a Canadian bank.
