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.
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.
Corporations are not people and should have to disclose where they donate money to political campaigns. The "people" who work for corporations don't make the decisions about which political campaign the money goes to-only the few at the top who are already wealthy in their own right and probably very conservative in the political views. Why would they want to change anything? If corporations had to disclose who they supported, I might be able to be informed about whether or not I wanted to do business with them.....
