Dear Commission,

Right now, Super PACs don't have to disclose their unlimited corporate donations. That means they can keep the public in the dark about who's funding the attack ads that bombard their TV screens daily.

That's why I'm joining with the 14 United States senators who formally asked you to use your regulatory authority to require that corporations disclose their spending in elections.

SEC: Exercise your regulatory authority to require public disclosure of corporate political contributions. Corporations shpould not be in a position to overide the facts and buy votes using unbridled funding giving them enormous power with all the potential for abuse. We see it at work now in the republican primaries.. This is not good for any of us One man, one vote.
