Protest leaders demonized the bank last week at rallies outside the Wisconsin capitol building. The leftists said the bank had donated to Governor Scott Walker last year… However, the bank said it did not donate to either candidate.

Greendale police say they are actively investigating an incident of tagging at the M&I Bank branch near Southridge Mall.
The graffiti is clearly directed at Gov. Scott Walker and anyone who supports the actions that eliminated most collective bargaining this past week.
The vandals spray painted the side of the building as well as the front doors of the bank branch.
JS Online reported:
Police said Monday they are investigating an incident Saturday night in which a citizen saw someone spray-painting anti-Gov. Scott Walker graffiti on the side of an M&I bank branch at Southridge.
Interim Police Chief Bob Malasuk said Monday the bystander spotted the vandal just after 10 p.m. spray-painting the building. No suspect has yet been apprehended.
Malasuk said words such as “Traitor” and “Unions are Forever,” as well as profanity directed at Walker were spray-painted on the wall.
The damage has been cleaned up.
Last week, the Wisconsin Professional Police Association, the Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin, the International Association of Fire Fighters Local 311, Madison Teachers Inc., Green Bay Education Association, Dane County Deputy Sheriffs Association and the Madison Professional Police Officers Association announced a boycott against businesses for either supporting Walker directly, or its executives supporting Walker’s campaign, or because the companies are members of Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce, a pro-business group that supported the governor, or all three.
M&I Bank was the first company named as part of the boycott.
The bank has said that it has not taken, or will not take, a position either for or against the governor’s budget-repair bill.
The bank said in a statement that it has not contributed to any candidate and did not contribute to Walker or Mayor Tom Barrett in the gubernatorial election.
Figures. The bank didn’t even donate to Walker and it is being targeted.
Nice work, leftists.
Don’t expect the state-run media to report on this.
Greendale is a suburb of Milwaukee.
