Sounds mandatory.

How far would this go? Would this extend to family members? Businesses where he/she owns substantial control? Charitable organizations? How far down the political totem pole would these mandatory disclosures go? State Governors? Senators? Congress people? Mayors? School board members? Union leaders? Non-profit executives?

What if the improper relationship between a candidate or elected official isn't monetary? What if the relationship is based on common goals... Like say, a congressperson or President is leveraged by a foreign special interest group? Should these relationships also have to be revealed?

Funny that people were ridiculed when concerns were/are raised about foreign contributions and personal compensation to the Clintons.
