Dear Members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:
Shareholders, who are abused by corporate leaders in many ways, have a right to know how much their corporation spends on politics (directly and through intermediaries), and which candidates are being promoted or attacked. The public that buys a company's goods and services also has a moral claim on that information. And citizens have a right to know what a given company thinks it is getting in return for money or equivalents spent on behalf of any one politician.
I strongly support the SEC issuing a rule in the near future that would require publicly traded corporations to publicly disclose all their spending on political activities.
Thank you for considering my comment.
