Dear Securities and Exchange Comm.,
As a citizen and an investor, I wish to know that corporations are spending funds on worthwhile investments. Sometimes that may mean investing in a political race in order to elect a representative who will be beneficial for the corporation. But I need to know which investments the corporation is making -- including investments in political races -- in order to gauge the likelihood of future profit from that investment. And I need to know if the investment is merely political -- that is, without a good chance of increasing the return on MY investment in the corporation.
Therefore, I am requesting that the SEC require all corporations make public all donations to political campaigns, whether via PACs or any other channel.
