Just as there are ethical issues regarding corporate activities regarding contamination, human respect issues and personnel policies, there should be transparency regarding attempts to influence the politics of government regulation and unethical manipulation of our political systems.
The SEC and its commissioners should continue to work on a rule requiring political disclosure from public companies, in the interests of their shareholders. Businesses should not be empowered to use backdoor political channels like nonprofits or associations to do their political bidding, and shareholders have a right to know how executives are using company resources for political purposes — especially if those purposes are against shareholders' and/or public interests.
