Coates and Lincoln on Fulfilling the Promise of Citizens United
John Coates and Taylor Lincoln have posted “SEC Action Needed to Fulfill the Promise of Citizens United” over at the Harvard Forum. Here’s a brief excerpt:
[T]he Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision to let corporations spend unlimited sums in federal elections was premised on a pair of promises: Corporations would disclose expenditures, and shareholders would police such spending. Those promises remain unfulfilled …. The best chance to fulfill those promises may now rest with the SEC, which was recently petitioned to begin a rule-making process to require disclosure of political activity by corporations.
I've read some of Coates and Lincoln's articles in the past. They write good stuff.
