Allum Bokhari, Breitbart, June 16, 2021

Wells Fargo, one of the largest retail banks in the United States, has shut down the bank account of Lauren Witzke, who ran as the Republican party candidate for U.S. Senate in the state of Delaware last year.

In a post on Telegram, Witzke reported that her bank account had been shut down, leaving her stranded in Florida.


“When I called Wells Fargo told me that it was a ‘business decision’ and that they have the right to close my account at any time. {snip} Use this as a warning and get your money out of Wells Fargo if you are a conservative. This is so evil.”


In a comment to Breitbart News, Wells Fargo did not deny shutting down the account, but insisted that it does not make such decisions for political reasons.
