‘Monopoly man’ returns for Mulvaney’s CFPB hearing

Greg Nash

An activist who attends Trump administration congressional hearings dressed as the mascot from Monopoly reappeared on Thursday on Capitol Hill during a hearing with acting Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) chief Mick Mulvaney.

Amanda Werner, arbitration campaign manager for advocacy group Public Justice, was spotted in the background of Mulvaney’s hearing dressed as Rich Uncle Pennybags as the acting CFPB chief and White House budget director attended a hearing of the Senate Banking Committee.

During the hearing, tweets from the Public Justice account called Mulvaney a “hack” and mocked him for saying that employees at the Trump White House often approached him for jobs.

Werner previously attended the hearing of former Equifax CEO Richard Smith in October and attended another hearing in November.

The activist also posted a photo in November, showing the character standing behind Smith in a Senate corridor holding a large bag of fake money.
