Should politicians be required to disclose last-minute campaign contributions?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on September 20, 2003
“Yeah, I think they should be because I think that helps ensure honesty in a public service position.”
“Yes, I think they should. They should be truthful with everyone regarding how much they spend and how much they get.”
“No, I don’t think so. My general feeling is that they should not have to disclose them until after the fact. I think they should be disclosed, but if you have to disclose them up front I feel like it’s an infringement of free speech.”
“Yes, they should. The fact that it’s last-minute shouldn’t make a difference. We still want to know where they’re getting their money.”
