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.
Allowing businesses to hide their political contributions is fraudulent to the stockholders and dangerous for our society. If it can not stand the light of day and scrutiny it should most probably be illegal if it is not now.
