Chicago Rally Against ShoreBank Bailout on June 9

There will be a rally against the ShoreBank bailout on Wednesday, June 9 at 12:00 Noon at the downtown location of ShoreBank. That's 134 N. LaSalle Street, across the street from City Hall. Scheduled speakers include Joel Pollak, candidate for U.S. Congress (IL-9) and Isaac Hayes, candidate for U.S. Congress (IL-2). The event is organized by Tea Party Patriots Chicago (TPPC). They will be handing out fliers to educate the public on the corrupt, politically connected bailout of ShoreBank. "ShoreBank has received $35 million in stimulus funds, $75 million from companies that have received bailout money (Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, GE)," writes TPPC's Coordinator Steve Stevlic, "and now they're hoping to receive another $75 million in taxpayer money. ShoreBank provided Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Trinity United Church with a $10 million line of credit - now they need a bailout. We hope this rally can bring attention to this issue and help prevent this looting of our treasury." Stevlic says that ShoreBank hopes to cash-in on their high-level political connections with Barack Obama, Jan Schakowsky and her convicted felon husban Robert Creamer, Senator Dick Durbin, Van Jones and others. "At the very least," he says, "no taxpayer money should go to ShoreBank until there is a forensic audit of their finances." TPPC has more information at their website. Glenn Beck recently gave ShoreBank the blackboard treatment here: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4.
