Subject: Require disclosure of corporate spending in politics.

January 31, 2012

Securities and Exchange Commission

Dear Commission,

Right now, Super PACs don't have to disclose their unlimited corporate donations. That means they can keep the public in the dark about who's funding the attack ads that bombard their TV screens daily.

That's why I'm joining with the 14 United States senators who formally asked you to use your regulatory authority to require that corporations disclose their spending in elections.

SEC: Exercise your regulatory authority to require public disclosure of corporate political contributions.

The SC has allowed a very deceitful act to flourish. Not only is this whole fiasco uttlerly n0n-transparent, it encourages secret groups to do what they want with no accountability. When you have power, money and secretcy you have disaster!
I have always thought the people who make up these Super Pacs have more political influence because they contribute twice; once as an individual and again as a group. It is all about power and the ability to "screw" the American people!!
