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. We seem to be quick to report and decry corruption and bribery in other governments when we now have it on a monumental scale in our own country and what is worse it has been 'legalized' by the highest court in the land. So, as citizens, couldn't we at least have the benefit of knowing who is being bought and paid for by whom? Please DO YOUR DUTY.
