Dear Members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:
Citizens United is a ridiculous and dangerous decision in how it affects our elections and political process. Until it can be overturned, it is imperative to shine a bright light on where the money is coming from so people can make informed decisions on the information the corporations are paying for.
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.
