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. If you have nothing to hide, then you should have no fear of transparency.  Refusing to make your contributions known sends the clear message that you are engaging in illegal activities with OUR money (again [or should I say 'still'])!
