Dear Members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:
As a voting American citizen who exercises his Freedom of Speech by contributing to political campaigns and candidates, I AM REQUIRED TO DISCLOSE MY CONTRIBUTIONS. As a stockholder in a corporation the CEO uses corporates ffunds to contribute to political campaigns and candidates. Corporate and tort law treats corporations as fictional persons. Citizens United gave corporations as fictional persons the freedom of speech to contribute to political campaigns and candidates, there is a gap in law requiring real, but not corporate fictional persons to disclose their political contributions. Further, I as a voting citizen freely choose to contributeto the party of my choice, but I, as a stock holder, am denied this freedom of political speech. The CEO uses stockholders' but not his own funds to make these undisclosed political contributions.Representing the public interest the FEC must plug this illogical and antidemocratic gap in our election laws
I thank you for this opportunity to exercise my freedom of speech in this matter where the FEC has both the power and duty to plug this gap in our election laws.
