As you know, the Supreme court's Citizens United ruling has enabled corporations to have undue influence on our political process by giving them the right to secretly spend investor's money on elections.

I believe the Securities and Exchange Commission can mitigate that influence by issuing rules requiring publicly traded corporations to publicly disclose all of their political spending. Informing the public of how much a corporation spends on political issues and candidates would serve shareholder's interests and the public interest as well.

I respectfully urge you to take action and thank you for your consideration.
