Letter Type C:
The Securities and Exchange Commission
Dear Securities and Exchange Commission,
Millions of dollars are flooding the airwaves for or against candidates, and much of that money is untraceable. Right now, a corporation could be sinking millions of dollars into a political campaign and the actual owners of the company, the shareholders, would have no idea.
Both shareholders and the public must be fully informed as to how much a corporation spends on politics and which candidates are being promoted or attacked.
I urge the Securities and Exchange Commission to issue a rule requiring publicly-traded corporations to disclose all their political spending.
