Bank says no to can­di­date

South Florida Sun-Sentinel (Sunday) - - Local -

TAL­LA­HAS­SEE — Florida’s Demo­cratic can­di­date for agri­cul­ture com­mis­sioner says a sec­ond bank has ter­mi­nated her cam­paign ac­count be­cause she sup­ports med­i­cal mar­i­juana.

Nikki Fried’s cam­paign man­ager, Ali­cia Stall­worth, told the Mi­ami Her­ald that BB&T called the cam­paign Aug. 29 to tell them that their bank ac­count had to be closed within 30 days. Stall­worth says the bank sent them an email last Fri­day say­ing the ac­count had to be closed by Wed­nes­day.

Fried’s cam­paign had pre­vi­ously used Wells Fargo un­til that fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tion closed her ac­counts last month, just weeks be­fore the Aug. 28 pri­mary, which Fried won.
