Dear Members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:

If we cannot reverse the disastrous and corruptive influence of Citizens United, we must do all we can to at least mitigate it. I resent corporations in which I have some money invested to give to political entities I do not approve of. These monies should be coming back to me as dividends and interests: THEY ARE ROBBING US.
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.
