Untrustworthy Chase Bank
The New York Timesstory on the controversy quotes Micah Daigle, executive director of Students for Sensible Drug Policy as saying that, “They never gave us any indication that there was any problem with our organization qualifying. Now they’re completely stonewalling me.” The paper also reports that the two above groups “believe that Chase disqualified them over concerns about associating its name with their missions.”

They did not disqualify SSDP and MPP until it was clear that people supported them. Instead Chase benefited from the publicity generated by those two organizations and then screwed them at the last minute. Having the right to do something and doing the whats right are not the same thing. I know form personal experience that Chase Bank is run by a bunch of taxpayer funds sucking jerks. This latest incident merely confirms that.
