A Petition to Fire SEC Chair Gary Gensler Has Almost 25,000 Signatures

“Al from Boston” and 23,919 other individuals would like to see SEC Chairman Gary Gensler gone, namely for obstruction of justice, incompetence, and screwing over retail investors.

From the change.org petition:

SEC Chairman Gary Gensler is complicit in criminal activities perpetrated by Citadel Securities, Citadel the Market Maker in naked short selling and dark pool abuse. Mr. Gensler is guilty of obstruction of justice due to his lack of enforcement of the laws pertaining to naked short selling and lack of competent oversight of market maker activities. Due to Mr. Gensler’s crimes, millions of retail investors were defrauded of countless MILLIONS of dollars. I’m referring to working class, middle class and poor folks as well as institutional investors. Mr. Gensler needs to step down as the chairman, and a thorough, detailed , forensic analysis and investigation into Citadel Securities and Citadel Market Maker. This cannot go unpunished. Rise up and sign!

Has a single change.org petition ever accomplished anything? Not that we’re aware of. Well, good luck to them anyway.
