California Disclose Act ensures transparency

By Craig Dunkerley, Letter to the Editor

Thanks for your recent coverage of the looming disaster called the Keystone XL pipeline. It exemplifies a deadly nexus that is killing our democracy: the pipeline, politics, and private special-interest money. The money buys political influence, which overwhelms the public interest. Even worse, most of the money for things like political ads is spent anonymously. We could begin to fix this last part by supporting more legislation like the California Disclose Act, SB 52. San Jose mayoral candidates Sam Liccardo and Dave Cortese both agree. I hope your readers will, too.
