I am writing to ask the Securities and Exchange Commission to make a rule for public disclosure of political spending by publicly traded corporations, and soon.

Our elections are being overly influenced by groups that much of the money used is from secret donations from publicly traded corporations. The Shareholders and the public should know how much is being spent and where.

Thank you for considering my comment.
