Monopoly Man Trolls Wall Street Fat Cats During Congressional Hearing

Rich Uncle Pennybags, commonly known as the mascot from the classic board game Monopoly, showed up on Capitol Hill today to troll Equifax, a corporation whose negligence caused a massive data breach putting the personal credit information of over 100 million individuals up for grabs.
