Not Comforting

You know, I appreciate one of our corporate overlords being against the corporate SuperPACs, but this isn't any better.
President Obama's supporters have created a Super-PAC called Priorities USA. Cohen says he and other Comcast executives don't contribute to Super-PACs or so called 527 groups that shield donors.

"We participate actively in the process but we participate through candidate PACs through full disclosure (and) through party PACs and party committee PACs with full disclosure of our participation," Cohen said.

Cohen noted that he's also raised money for Republicans including House majority leader Eric Cantor, and he follows the same rule in those efforts.

A world where company policy can dictate how and where their executives send their political bucks isn't a very awesome world either.
