    Looks like Indymac Bank had a mini bank run over the weekend due to recent concerns about their health that were aggravated by Senator Schumer.

    Their corporate blog post has some interesting details:

    "as a result of Sen. Schumer making his letters public and the resulting press coverage, we did experience elevated customer inquiries and withdrawals in our branch network last Friday and on Saturday of roughly $100 million, about ½ of 1% of total deposits."

    Indymac's special 12mo CD is now up to 4.35% APY, and they now have a 5.00% APY 36-month CD.

    In the state they're in now, they'll have to offer very high rates to overcome people's worries, but at the same time, they can't look too desperate.
