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.

EVEN WITH the shareholders' interests, a democracy is founded on equal rights, and the Corporate Persons (which the Supreme Court has invested these businesses with that title and privileges) should not have vastly greater access and power over Congress, the Executive Branch or even the Supreme Court.

Protect the citizens with at least equal KNOWLEDGE of the spending.
