Dear Members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:
EVEN THOUGH THE HORSE IS OUT OF THE BARN ... WE NEED TO KNOW WHO OPENNED THE DOORS ... MAKE CORPORATIONS ESS UP TO THEIR PART OF THE SPENDING AND BUYING OF OUR CONGRESS ...
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.
