Per the FEC:
Foreign nationals may not make contributions in connection with any election--Federal, State or local. This prohibition does not apply to foreign citizens who are lawfully admitted for permanent residence in the United States (those who have "green cards").
As many Corporations have unlimited numbers of foreign investors how is contributing shareholder money not a violation of the FEC restriction?
If the Congess thinks squeezing Unions that use member dues for political action is okay, why not the same concerns for shareholder money (both foreign and domestic) used for political actions. People join a union seeking an advocate, people invest in stocks seeking profit.
