Hiding your corporation's political spending from the public is unethical, but misleading your investors about that spending is illegal.

From CREW:
" CREW Sues Aetna for Misleading Shareholders

AetnaspacerHiding your corporationís political spending from the public is unethical, but misleading your investors about that spending is illegal.

Last month, on behalf of Aetna shareholder Stephen Silberstein, CREW filed a lawsuit against the health insurance giant for issuing false and misleading proxy statements to investors. Although Aetna presents itself as a model of corporate transparency, its efforts to conceal its political spending crossed the line and violated securities law. Since we first called out Aetnaís deceptive dark money donations in 2012, CREW has continued holding the companyís feet to the fire. "

Thanks for the post, my friend. I hope that the shareholders are successful. We really need to get the money out of our elections so they can be fair and honest.

Thanks JL for the link to the site. Kudos to CREW. My UU church is a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations and I had heard about this two days ago from a local church member. Read and noted.
