CNNMoney reports that at the bank's annual shareholder meeting in Tampa Tuesday, JPMorgan announced that three directors who served on the risk committee during the London Whale fiasco received only between 51% and 59% of shareholders' votes.

The board's presiding director, Lee Raymond, foreshadowed a potential board shake up when he told shareholders to 'stay tuned' for announcements about the composition of this committee.
'We have never seen something like this before', said Anne Simpson, the director of corporate governance at the $266bn pension fund CalPERS. 'It's more serious than Dimon losing the chairman's vote, because it means people will leave the board'.
