Goldman Sachs Withdraws From Fund-Raiser After Occupy Wall Street Gets Place at Table
Earlier this month, hundreds of New Yorkers received an unusual dinner invitation from the Lower East Side People’s Federal Credit Union.
The Credit Union, a small lender serving New York’s poor, was holding a fund-raiser to celebrate its 25th anniversary. Among the chief sponsors listed on the invitation wasInc.
Among the honorees: “Occupy Wall Street.”
They might as well have asked Marie Antoinette to dig into her purse to support Madame Defarge’s knitting business.
Shortly after the invitation was sent out, Goldman withdrew its name from the dinner. It also pulled the plug on its $5,000 funding pledge.
