Dear members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:
I am writing to urge the SEC to issue a rule requiring publicly traded corporations to publicly disclose all their political spending.
Both shareholders and the public must be fully informed as to how much the corporation spends on politics and which candidates are being promoted or attacked. Disclosures should be posted promptly on the SEC's web site.
To allow the practice of any CEO using company funds to support the campaigns of the politicians who will fight for their legal tax evasion, their rights to contaminate the environment, and to conduct business in this Reagan-era inspired return to an unregulated manner, is so against the best interests of the USA itself, that any Member of the SEC who wishes to aid and abet this level of graft and corruption, should at once vacate his position on the grounds of conflict of interest.
Thank you for considering my comment.
