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. As a shareholder in several large, andsmall, companies, I expect full disclosure concerning any and all political cintributions, donations, or other financial support made by those companies. I believe this so strongly that I will sell my positions in any company that does not disclose such expenditures.
