A Florida candidate running to become the state’s next agriculture commissioner says banking giant Wells Fargo shut down her campaign account because she supports medical marijuana.
Democrat Nikki Fried said Monday that the banking giant started asking questions about her platform a month after she joined the statewide race: Does she advocate more access to medical marijuana? Would she accept contributions from medical marijuana lobbyists?
Fried responded in July that she herself had lobbied for medical marijuana companies and had received contributions from lobbyists. Then, just weeks before the Aug. 28 primary, Wells Fargo said in a letter that it was shutting down her account based on a review of its banking risks.
Now they are bitching. When it was applied to Gun stores and manufacturers, they applauded and congratulated themselves for their smartness.
Payback is a resentful wench.
