The SEC and its commissioners should continue to work on a rule requiring political disclosure from public companies, in the interests of their shareholders. I own stock in many corporations and I would like to know how much of the company's money that the executives are spending on their own personal political preferences. 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.

There is no valid reason to hide this information from shareholders or even the public.
