Corporate political spending stays hidden
Edited on Sun Apr-24-11 12:49 PM by Swede
Despite mounting calls for greater transparency, only a few of the country's 75 leading energy, healthcare and financial services corporations fully disclose political spending, according to a review of company records and state and federal campaign finance reports.

While complying with legal requirements to report direct donations to candidates, the vast majority of these companies many of which are seeking legislative favors from the new Congress do not reveal information even to their shareholders about support for politically active trade associations like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
