Subject: File No. 4-637

Dear Members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:

Deficits abound; programs are cut; the country is divided on many levels, and yet, a Presidential election cost hundreds of millions, senate and others, cost fortunes, THIS HAS TO STOP.

It's long past time to end secret political spending by corporations.
 
So 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.

Both shareholders and the public deserve to know how much a given corporation spends on politics (directly and through intermediaries), and which candidates are being promoted or attacked.

Thank you for considering my comment.

 

Sincerely,

Barry Nisman
