MoveOn statement on Antonio Weiss announcement

MoveOn.org Civic Action Executive Director Anna Galland on the announcement that Antonio Weiss has withdrawn his name from consideration to become the Treasury Department’s undersecretary of domestic finance:

“Thanks to Senator Elizabeth Warren and other Democrats who stuck their feet in the revolving door between Wall Street and Washington, and to hundreds of thousands of activists who supported them in doing so, this misguided nomination has been defeated. This is a victory for the American people against the corrupting influence of powerful Wall Street interests.

We will continue to fight for the principle that we deserve public officials who can be counted on to stand up for Main Street, not Wall Street. This is a defining issue of our time, and we will not back down, no matter how condescending the big banks or their allies are, or how much they spend on lobbyists.”
