Subject: Require disclosure of corporate spending in politics.

January 31, 2012

Securities and Exchange Commission

Dear Commission,

I believe financial contributions are altering democratic life in our country, to its harm. I believe the use of major funds to influence political belief and action ought to be subject of public information. Accountability for belief and funding of certain political activity should be a matter of public responsibility, never a secret, that is, if we are to sustain a viable democratic life.

I therefore urge your action to require disclosure of corporate spending on political campaigns.
