ACORN Missouri Assaults Bank As President Obama Signs Bank Bailout Bill

President Obama signed the financial regulations bill into law today. At the exact time of the signing, leftist agitators from the former Missouri ACORN assaulted a Chase Bank sales branch in Chesterfield, a suburb of St Louis.

The timing was precise – planned to bring further pressure and media attention on the banks just as massive federal regulations, many not yet written, are signed into law. Local reporters from KMOX were tipped off to the protest, ostensibly about renegotiating a mortgage, as was local television affiliate KSDK.

The scene was mayhem as forty protestors, including several children brought in tow, stormed into the offices of the Chase branch and began chanting, shouting with a bullhorn, and demanding meetings with the bank principals (there were no principals, as it was a sales branch), but that didn’t matter to protestors.

The group was professionally organized by former Missouri ACORN Midwest director Jeff Ordower, in addition to Hannah Allison, the paid organizer for Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment, the newly branded spawn of the Missouri ACORN employees. The group had everything set up. The protestors get inside the building, disrupt the operations, ignore the complaints of office staff, and continue until the police arrive. At that point, the two white organizers negotiate with the police, while the mainly black crowd goes out to the lobby. As more police and building security arrive, the group heads outside, where the organizers speak in measured tones to the compliant local media.

Hannah Allison, the pretty young college-educated organizer is tasked with speaking to police. Ordower arranges the media interviews, trying to stay off camera.

The group gets their media attention, meets a few local managers, and quietly leaves after getting Chase to “agree” to negotiate the terms of the mortgage.
