Halliburton wins praise from open-government groups for commitment to political disclosure

From The Houston Chronicle

This is news: Halliburton is being praised — yes, praised! — by political watchdog groups. The Houston-based multinational corporation, which has been blasted for a decade by liberals and good government groups for its close ties to the White House and the Pentagon, is now being held up as a model of openness.

The company that once boasted Dick Cheney (that model of secrecy) as its CEO has won kudos for agreeing to disclose all of its political contributions, including indirect donations to secretive Super PACs and other political committees.
