Greens seek financial transparency.
ALL parties should have financial transparency or not be put on the ballots in states. States should require financial transparency of candidates befor they can be placed on voting ballots for election.

Sounds great on the surface, problem is what is done outside the direct control of a party.

All candidates should have to disclose all contributions to them before they can be put on a states voting ballot.

I agree with the green party

Much help, or harm, is done for any given candidate by sources that are not contributions to that candidate or party. Hence not under the control of that cadidate or party. This happenes on all sides.
Another problem with what you say is "BEFORE they can be put on a states voting ballot".
It wouldn't be known who ALL the contibutors are at that time.
