I am very discoruaed by the lack of substantive debate around the
issues that really matter to our nation, and the economy.
Super PACs are contributing signifiancally to destroying our political system with the extraordinary money they have available to turn an election one way or the other, primarily using negative campaigning.
This is outrageous
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.
