Got a bit messy, and it got done. C'mon full Council! Thx, SydB for a typically fine effort.

This decision being "spurred largely by Wells Fargo’s financing of the Dakota Access pipeline project" means it was the largest factor? Being an instrumental player in the Great Recession, or ripping off millions of customers by creating - and charging fees on - fake accounts weren't the main catalysts?

Good job, Seattle. Now get it done on Monday.

Jeez, @1 and @3, stop bitching when people do the right thing, just because you think it's not for pure enough reasons. Go Council, do the right thing, for whatever the fuck reason you want. Results, baby.

Oops. I meant @2 and @3. Sorry, Scott.

It always helps to be better informed on the issues.

Lets just hope Wells Fargo doesn’t divest its support of the City of Seattle and its citizens, like the City Council did to the bank today.

Thanks, Sydney. GO, Council, and U.S.Army Corps of Engineers. Let's get this done already--no more Keystone or Dakota Access Pipelines! And to all Native American Tribal Nations out there---warrior up!

$3 billion in holdings and we have an out of control homeless and crime crisis? Really? Am I the only one missing that hypocricy?

No one has issue with Sawant using Vanity fair as her source of information?

Without defending WF, this seems fairly arbitrary. Even Trump-like. What other projects financed by banks will incur the wrath of the Council?
