I agree with the petitioners, and I urge the SEC to adopt a rule requiring publicly-held companies to disclose their contributions to political and social causes, organizations and individuals.  As a shareholder, I have the right to know how the companies in which I invest my money are spending that money.  It is your responsibility to protect the rights of shareholders by requiring transparency in corporate spending.
