Dear Members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:

Please, you know there needs to be an end to secret political spending by corporations.

Both shareholders and the public deserve to know how much a given corporation spends on politics (directly and through intermediaries), and which candidates are being promoted or attacked.  When lies can be presented as facts thru political strategies, its time to wake up and realize that America will further erode when corporations use propaganda to encourage people to vote against their best interests.

So I strongly support the SEC issuing a rule in the near future that would require publicly traded corporations to publicly disclose all their spending on political activities.
Thank you for considering my comment.

Sincerely,

Wendy Duncan
