Right now, Super PACs don't have to disclose their unlimited corporate donations. That means they can keep the public in the dark about who's funding the attack ads that bombard their TV screens daily.
That's why I'm joining with the 14 United States senators who formally asked you to use your regulatory authority to require that corporations disclose their spending in elections.
SEC: Exercise your regulatory authority to require public disclosure of corporate political contributions.
Requiring public disclosure is the LEAST you can to modify the malignant effects of the Citizens United Supreme Court decision, but until the decision is reversed, it's a step in the right direction.
