    ...we need "right to run corporations" laws that would facilitate firing any CEO who tried to join his company to the Chamber.

    Simple:

    1. No CEO can enroll his company in the Chamber without an affirming vote from the stockholders.

    2. Stockholders would also be allowed to vote out the CEO at the same time.

      Management will always win the vote, in the same way that they almost always get the directors that they want.

      More effective would be that they be required to disclose in advance and get approval for any contribution made to any PAC, lobbyist or entity that gives to PAC's.  Unions have to get special ok from members to use dues for political purposes.

      Management will still almost always win it but, based on their secrecy in giving to the CoC and the CoC's spending, the scrutiny will limit them a bit.

        A big problem with the Citizens United case is there's really no provisions to force disclosure on the books. Companies can basically donate through a chain of third parties and hide their identities completely.
