Super PACs are a disgrace to the the democratic process. They taint the election process with corporate money and essentially puts the presidency up for the highest bidder. Corporations are not people! Our Founding Fathers would be ashamed and completely disgusted with what the election process has become thanks to the ruling of the supreme court.
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.
