Corporate tax dodgers get a tax bill from OKC MoveOn.org members

April 18, 2011

MoveOn members and supporters rallied and listened to Frosty Troy and others set the record straight on the so-called deficit crisis, then presented employees at a local Chase Bank with a “bill” for Morgan Chase’s unpaid taxes.

MoveOn.org has been giving Oklahoma a bit of attention in the past few months, trying to build up their activist “council” in Oklahoma City (the Tulsa council has been fairly well established for a while. A statewide coordinator has been hired, Ali Canada, and local activists like Pat McCauley in Norman have been holding house parties and planning public events (a pro-labor rally at the Capitol on Feb. 26 was one such event).

To join (or start) your local council, start on the MoveOn Political Action Council Home page.
