Where is Mary Jo White?

When Supreme Court Justice Kennedy voted for Citizens United, he said corporate disclosure would provide a check and balance on campaign contributions. Well Justice Kennedy, since you cast your vote for Citizens United, the corporations have increased secrecy via non-disclosure, Super PACS, and related influence on free elections. You were wrong. Now there is only one hope for corporations to disclose their political contributions. Securities and Exchange Commission Chairperson Mary Jo White could mandate corporations disclose their contributions to shareholders, potential investors, and the public. But she hasn’t. So, the operative question is:

“Where is Mary Jo White?”

This is a national campaign sponsored by Common Cause, Public Citizen, Greenpeace, and a number of major organizations. Investment fund managers representing almost $700 billion also back disclosure. Over one million people have added their names to the initiative. Be one of them, click here to join Over One Million People in Telling the SEC to Expose the Hidden Influence of Corporate Money

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
