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.
It is outrageous that in our United States democracy, the Supreme Court made a decision that does in fact, take away from the peoples' right, to fair and democratic elections. There should be immediate action to overturn the Supreme Court's decision. I have to disclose everything on my tax returns; why shouldn't Super Pacs, and beyond that--there should never have been the right for Super Pacs to buy an election.
