Abolish the legal doctrine of "corporate personhood"

[We should] abolish the legal doctrine of "corporate personhood" which illegitimately allows corporations to claim constitutional protections. This doctrine currently allows corporations to overturn democratically enacted laws.

Revoke charters when corporations flagrantly violate law

I will use the office of Attorney General to assist local governments and community groups with drafting local laws to assert local, democratic control over corporations. I will initiate charter revocation proceedings against those corporations which flagrantly violate state and federal laws.
