Securities and Exchange Commission
I am tired of elections being bought by the big corporations - this notion that corporations are to be considered people is bad enough, but when they hide whom or where these millions of dollars are coming from then it is beyond the pale. They attack with impunity kinda like the bully who says shut up or I will pound you.
MAKE IT STOP!!!!
One person (not corporation) one vote with the required identification presented. When I vote I am required to prove who I am - the very least we can do is make the Super PACs identify their doners and limit the amount of the contributions that person is allowed to give. We over threw the British because America did not want to be ruled by kings and yet the Super PACs are ruling our elections like and buying the vote.
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.
