Charlie Langton: Should Corporations Disclose All Political Contributions?

If Mitt Romney is right and corporations are people, should corporations be forced to disclose all political contributions? Charlie Langton was joined by former candidate for Secretary of State, Jocelyn Benson, for a discussion on Talk Radio 1270. Benson is leading the campaign for transparency on corporate donations to political groups and is calling for a Michigan constitutional amendment requiring full transparency. In her view, anybody who donates to a political campaign to try to influence an election should be forced to disclose this information to voters.

Why isn’t she pushing for individuals and unions to be a part of this movement? Because they already have disclosure requirements unlike corporations which do not.

Benson has been called a hypocrite since the non-profit corporation pushing for this change has not disclosed their own donations. What’s her answer for this? And who’s supporting this movement? Listen to the interview to find out.
