Subject: File No. 4-637

February 2, 2013

Dear Members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:

People are limited in the amount that they can contribute to a candidate or PAC.  If you listen to Republicans, corporations and people are the same, so they should be limited and since they are publicly traded or individual tax entities, their information should be made available to the public just as other contributors' information is.

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,

Ron Jeske
