I think it is outrageous that corporations can use monies that could be going to shareholders like myself to support candidates that I may whole heartedly detest without any knowledge on my part they are doing so.
As THE government agency setting the rules for corporate America, is it too much to ask for you to require these actions to at the very least be done in such a way that I can review them if I choose?
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. You have the authority to close this loophole that enables all this secret spending.
As a shareholder I would like to be fully informed as to how much corporations spend on politics and which candidates are being promoted or attacked. Disclosures should be posted promptly on the SEC's web site.
Thank you for considering my comment.
