The following Letter Type J, or variations thereof, was submitted by individuals or entities.
Letter Type J:
The Supreme Court's dreadful Citizens United decision opened the floodgates for unlimited secret campaign contributions by corporations. The SEC can't limit the contributions - but it can strip away the secrecy. The SEC's mandate includes protecting investors from corporate abuse. This means the commission has the right to require all publicly traded corporations to disclose their campaign contributions.
I join with CREW and Public Citizen and others in urging the SEC to issue a rule requiring corporations to disclose their contributions.
I urge the SEC to issue a rule requiring publicly traded corporations to publicly disclose all their political spending.
