How many Wall Street loyalists do we want in this administration? As Elizabeth Warren points out, Jay Clayton spent decades getting Wall Street banks off the hook and is married to a Goldman Sachs broker.
Now, Trump has nominated him to chair the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). He is, quite literally, married to the industry that he is being tasked to regulate.
Call Senators Feinstein and Harris!: (DC switchboard (202) 224-3121, other #’s below.)
Script: I’m calling today to oppose Jay Clayton as SEC Chairman. In 2008, the SEC got too cozy with Wall Street and we taxpayers lost more than $16 trillion dollars and 3 million of our homes, while Clayton helped Goldman Sachs make off with billions of our tax money. Clayton is a Wall Street insider who will not put the interests of American people first.
