Dear Members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:
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.
Also we must be concerned when corporations are considered to be citizens, and citizens, that can donate unlimited funds to any campaign. While "We the People" are limited to how much we can contribute.
Thank you for considering my comment.
