Before Jamie Dimon was grilled by a Senate Banking Committee in June 2012, he faced a stern roasting by protesters gathered in the Capitol Hill meeting room. As the JPMorgan Chase bank CEO entered the room, one spectator loudly began to recite a diatribe which began: “Jamie Dimon is a crook!” He then read off a number of other statements about the bank CEO, who was in Washington to respond to Senators’ questions about how a supposedly low-risk division of his bank had somehow lost more than $2 billion. The demonstrator eventually quieted down and was allowed to remain in the room. But as the hearing proceeded, a second bunch of protesters stood up, chanting “Stop foreclosures now!” and halting the hearing. Around a dozen people were escorted from the room, continuing to chant and hold up small signs.
