SEC Comment file 4-637

Dear Comment file 4-637,

I am deeply concerned about the influence of corporate money on our electoral process.

In particular, I am appalled that, because of the Supreme Court's ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, publicly traded corporations can spend investor's money on political activity in secret.

I am writing to urge the Securities and Exchange Commission to issue a rule requiring publicly traded corporations to publicly disclose all their political spending.

Both shareholders and the public must be fully informed as to how much the corporation spends on politics and which candidates are being promoted or attacked. Disclosures should be posted promptly on the SEC's web site.

Thank you for considering my comment.  It is especially concerning to FOIA and replication of XBRL Sunshine JOBS Acts possibilities in governance e-contracting and the resulting cooperation with good faith egovernance proceedings that prevent political contributions from being disclosed potentially as becoming vetted into Intellectual Property as "trade secrets" and what that implies for Sunshine FOIA and procurement policies exposure to People's critique.
