I am writing to urge the Securities and Exchange Commission to issue a rule requiring publicly traded corporations to publicly disclose all their political spending and to do so this year.

As a licensed trader who left the industry due to widespread fraud and criminal activities within the markets, those who seek to subvert the political process and increase the rampant corruption and insider trading should be exposed.
