Former National Republican Party Chair Michael Steele says corporations have the right to spend as much money as they want on elections.

But at the same time, corporations ought to disclose how much they give, and do so immediately, such as the law in Virginia stipulates.

Steele is in Des Moines for Tuesday’s caucuses. Steele said he likes the grassroots shake-em-up candidates like Ron Paul, and fears that Mitt Romney won’t fire up the base.

Oh, and he liked Mission Impossible.
