I am writing to support strongly a SEC regulation requiring publicly traded corporations to disclose their political contributions. I believe it is absolutely outrageous that vast amounts of corporate cash can be spent to influence elections without the voting public being able to know who is spending what!

"Dark money" is no friend to democracy. Such a regulation is a change that is within the power of the SEC to effect, while some of us are working at reversing "Citizens United.".

Thank you for considering my comment.
