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.
Frankly Corporations are not people, they don't act like people they don't live like people all they are is a piece of paper and they should not be allowed to contribute as a corporation to anything that has to do with Government. Not federal or state. It is unethical in my opinion to allow this when their are people that can be bought that are serving this country in the Government.
Thank you for considering my comment.
