The DISCLOSE Act would go a long way to ensuring voters know the whole story behind every ad. After all, the messenger is often as important as the message. U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia once wrote, “Requiring people to stand up in public for their political acts fosters civic courage, without which democracy is doomed.”
I have to say I agree. Disclosure has enjoyed bipartisan support in the past, and there’s no good reason why Congress shouldn’t come together now to ensure people have the whole story before they cast their votes.
