The Securities and Exchange Commission

Dear Securities and Exchange Commission,

There is little we can do to counteract the harm done by the Supreme Court ruling allowing unlimited contributions by corporations to political campaigns.

One of the few things that we can do is to require that such donations are made public, allowing shareholders and/or consumers to see where their money is being spent. Hopefully, they will use the information to curb this practice.

I strongly support rules requiring corporations to disclose political donations.
