Subject: Require disclosure of corporate spending in politics.

February 2, 2012

Securities and Exchange Commission

Dear Commission,

It is unconscionable that Super PACs don't have to disclose their unlimited corporate donations. The amounts of money that are pouring into the Republican primaries demonstrate the dangers of this policy. A candidate can virtually "own" the airwaves while not disclosing the identity of his/her donors. Thus, the public can be kept in the dark about who's funding the attack ads that bombard their TV screens daily which can easily lead to a corruption of the political process.

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. America's future deserves to have this safeguard.

Very truly yours,

Dr. Stephanie Goldstein
