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' interests.

This is just common sense!

Both shareholders and citizens absolutely have the right to know where this money is coming from!

Our democracy must be protected from gigantic sums of money being pumped into our political system by dark sources who, as David Koch said,
"(we) expect something in return".
