Securities & Exchange Commission Rule Comments
Securities and Exchange Commission: Rule Comments,
I am deeply concerned about the influence of corporate money on our electoral process. Any money to any politician for any reason is corruption. There should not be any money in politics, let alone business money. The Constitution of the United States of America has NEVER given business any rights, and it is fully aware of business.
In particular, I am appalled that, because of the Supreme Court's ruling in Citizens United v. FEC, publicly traded corporations can spend investor's money on political activity in secret. Money is power, and power corrupts.
I am writing to urge the Securities and Exchange Commission to issue a rule at least prohibiting business money to be used for any political reason.
Thank you for considering my comment.
Mr. Garry M. Doll
