Subject: Require disclosure of corporate spending in politics.

Jan 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.

Every proxy statement disloses Officer and Director Remunerations; disclosure of corporate donations to Political Parties and the respective amounts should be part of that process.
