Subject: Require disclosure of corporate spending in politics.

Securities and Exchange Commission

Dear Commission,

You could be the heroes we need in this beloved nation! Given the Supreme Court decision to have unlimited PAC donations, we need to have AT LEAST openness on who is contributing. The typical national view of our government currently is that it is bought and sold by corporations. To restore a healthier, more hopeful future for our government, you can insist on disclosure of the corporate donations. That is, unless you are being bought as well.

I'm asking you to use your regulatory authority to require that corporations publicly disclose their spending in elections. Be heroes, not corporate pawns!
