Due to the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, multi-national corporations are spending unprecedented, unlimited, and undisclosed amounts of money to elect candidates to public office. But the immense wealth at their command doesn't really belong to them; it belongs to the shareholders of their companies.
And, no matter how capable, and no matter how powerful this elite group of oligarchs has come to be, they should not be allowed to dump our retirement savings and our investments into their secret political war chests.
As a US citizen I demand that the FEC hold these corporations accountable and make contributions public knowledge.
