Subject: File No. 4-637

Dear Members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:

It's long past time to end secret political spending by corporations.
Please don't cave into the fascist, racist, terrorist, corrupt, traitorous Tea Party thugs and their partners in crimes against humanity and the environment, Fox "News" (the propaganda arm of the RepubliKKKan Party).

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.
