Securities and Exchange Commission
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. Particularly, since some of those corporations may well be foreign. I do not appreciate the fact that foreign corporations, by virtue of their money, have a bigger voice in our electoral process than I (an actual American citizen) have.
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.
