Dear members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:

I request that the SEC require publicly-traded corporations to let the public know the extent of their spending on politics.

When corporations can hand out millions of dollars "under the table" to political candidates and for political issues, corruption is allowed to run rampant. Hiding political donations is, by its very nature, corrupt, and does not befit the democratic ideals on which this country was founded.

Thank you for accepting my comment.
