Ron Conway Instructed The CEOs Of Every Company He Funds To Tell Their Employees How To Vote

Keeping it klassy.

Ron Conway, Mayor Ed Lee's own personal angel investor, knows how he'll be voting in this upcoming local election. [...]

Though the practice of an employer telling their employees how to vote was illegal and basically unthinkable until 2010, as "federal law barred companies from using corporate money to endorse and campaign for political candidates" including "urging employees to support specific politicians," that all went out the window with the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision.

    Maybe the country could put its naming rights up for sale. "The United States of Nabisco America" could bridge the 3 trillion gap from cutting corporate tax...
