Washington Post against “secret corporate money”

The Post editorializes in support of The DISCLOSE Act this morning.

The most important provision, however, is disclosure. Here, the proposal would go beyond addressing the particular problems created by the Citizens United ruling and improve on existing law. It would require disclosure of the underlying donors in independent expenditures and broaden disclosure requirements for what are termed “electioneering communications” — broadcast ads that mention particular candidates but do not advocate their election or defeat.
