Chase Refused Services to Conservative Business One Day After Slate Reporter Asked About It

June 9, 2019

Chase bank denied services to a business of a conservative man a day after a journalist with the left-leaning Slate media inquired with Chase about the business and linked it to “a hate group,” a leaked email shows.

On Jan. 31, Slate reporter April Glaser sent an email to several Chase representatives asking whether Chase is aware that an online store—1776.shop—linked to the right-wing group Proud Boys is using Chase as a payment processor, according to an email obtained by independent journalist and commentator Tim Pool.

“Is the usage of Chase Paymentech in support of such groups against Chase’s policy? On a deadline,” reads the email, which Chase confirmed as authentic, Pool said in a June 7 Youtube video.

Slate spokeswoman Katie Rayford confirmed in a statement that Glaser reached out to “banks providing financial services for 1776.shop.”

”We stand by her reporting on this newsworthy topic,” she said.

On Feb. 1, Enrique Tarrio, the owner of the store, was notified that Chase decided to stop processing payments for his store. He then received a letter from Chase dated Feb. 4, which said his account would be shut down on April 1.
