(c) A person under contract to provide personal services to the committee who is part of a corporation or partnership that includes individuals who will not be participating directly in the work performed by the entity for the committee may request the committee to exclude members of the entity from some or all of the provisions of this section. The committee may grant the request if it finds that doing so will not lead to the appearance that the committee is subject to undue political influence and if there is no appearance of impropriety.
