Don't mess with a St. Louis mom

If you know who's behind it, email us.

UPDATE: It was a lady broker named Lucy Nobbe who hired the plane, according to the Daily. She's a VP for the brokerage side of Wedbush, an investment bank.

From Fortune:

[The woman who sent the plan is a] Midwestern investment banker broker who woke up last night with the need to vent at those who she believes are leading the nation into an economic morass.

"I originally wanted to fly it over Washington, D.C., but learned that you can't do that," says the broker, who asked to remain anonymous for job security reasons [but later told The Daily her name]. "So I chose Wall Street instead, but didn't specifically intend it to fly over S&P. I'm just a mother from St. Louis who feels the only reason we got downgraded was people in politics."
