Take Action: Urge the SEC to require corporations to disclose their campaign contributions

From TAKE ACTION: Help us to "disinfect" Citizens United | CREW

  • The Supreme Court’s dreadful Citizens United decision opened the floodgates for unlimited secret campaign contributions by corporations.
  • The Securities and Exchange Commission can’t limit the contributions – but it can strip away the secrecy. The SEC’s mandate includes protecting investors from corporate abuse.
  • This means the commission has the right to require all publicly traded corporations to disclose their campaign contributions.
  • Urge the SEC to issue a rule requiring corporations to disclose their contributions.
