Every political ad should specifically state who funded it. Every company that provides money to candidates should reveal their payments. Every aspect of corporate influence on politicians should be crystal clear to the general public.

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.
