As I was combing through the City Council candidates’ filed paperwork, I came across something particularly ironic.
Jon Grant’s F-1 financial disclosure is amusing.
The former Tenants Union head is a homeowner. And a landlord (he rents out a room in his house). And as of the beginning of December when he filed the paperwork, his mortgage was held by Wells Fargo Bank.
Given his op-ed this morning arguing that the city should divest from Wells Fargo, I sincerely hope he’s taken the step of divesting himself (and if he has, he should update his F-1 filing).
None of this suggests Grant is actually doing anything wrong, of course. It’s just not at all what I expected.
