Securities and Exchange Comm.
Dear Securities and Exchange Comm.,
Financial support of elections by foreign sources is illegal. Absent disclosure you make one of your primary jobs of blocking such donations impossible.
In order to assure that foreign money is not influencing elections you have an obligation to require disclosure as a necessary and proper function in order to facilitate your policing of these sources.
I’m writing to urge the commission’s prompt approval of rules requiring public disclosure of political spending by publicly-held companies.
Thank you for considering my comment.
