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. At least it's a start in doing the right thing to combat this national embarrassment of a horrible Supreme Court decision devolving the nation into some kind of an electoral Wild West Show mentality. I, for one of many, will not be satisfied until a full Constitutional Amendment has taken place in order to return our elections back to something that were once a shining example of democracy for the rest of the world but now in many ways resemble what amounts to an evil circus complete with matching freak-show clowns. Please do everything you can, SEC, to facilitate a course correction, as we have gone badly off the right path. Thank you.
