Ms. White has dragged her feet on the issue of political disclosure by public companies to their shareholders and the public at large.

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.

There is no excuse for this; Ms. White has reneged on her statements during her confirmation.
