Subject: Require disclosure of corporate spending in politics.

February 2, 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.

Money is destroying our Republican/Democratic political form.

The corporation must be extricated from the electoral process.

Corporations are not people, as against the erroneous extrapolation of our highest court.

People are people - as in, 'government of the people.' Not: 'government of the corporation.'

Your attention, and action, is so much appreciated.
