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.

Elections could be done online for FREE!  Or one direct mailer where candidates states their position on issues. Then the right types of people that actually want to work for their constituents would be elected. Corporations have bought and paid for to many congressmen who are now working for them instead of "we the people"!

Thank you for considering my comment.
